    Congratulations to OceaPoly® partner DynaMarine on receiving the US Coast Guard, Great Lakes Ice Rescue Airboat contract. Their innovative design and quality construction will provide many years of service. Based on the US Coast Guard's statement, OceaPoly® is three to four times more durable than mechanically fastened polymer, which is why Dyna Marine uses it.

    DynaMarine Performance Boats was born of a vision, one that looked beyond current “state-of-the-art” in airboat design to “state-of-what-could-be” with imagination, determination, and a solid foundation of manufacturing expertise, precision craftsmanship, and financial strength. With exciting new hull designs that define the signature Dyna look, they are also providing the revolutionary on-water performance that is taking the airboat platform in thrilling new directions.

    As Dyna Marine designs and equips boats, they are partnering with top of the line suppliers to incorporate the best components and technologies available today. Using top names like OceaPoly Bonded UHMW Polymer, Turn Key Engine Supply, Livorsi Marine Electronics, Garmin, JL Audio, Ballistic Gear Drives, and WhirlWind and Sensenich propellers Dyna Marine is able to fly past the competition.
