About the manufacturer

The "Ob" boat is the development of the Novosibirsk Aviation Plant. Serial production of boats began in the distant 1967 and continues to this day.

Despite the rather impressive dimensions, the Ob boat is widely used by inveterate hunters and fishermen, outdoor enthusiasts, navigational inspectors, fishery inspectors.

More than ten times a series of boats from the domestic manufacturer was included in the list of winners of the All-Union competitions in overcoming difficult-to-travel distances in harsh conditions. According to the results of the competitions, the Novosibirsk plant repeatedly managed to win a prize in the category "The Most Massive Boat", since the boat often made up the bulk of the vessels that participated in the swimmings.

After the first powerboat "Ob" came off the assembly line, the designers immediately began to improve the series of swimming vehicles. The emergence of fresh solutions led to the release of more comfortable models, which are popular even today.

The hull of the vessel is made in the form of duralmine sheets, connected by rivets. The sealing of the boat is realized thanks to the use of rubber seals with putty.

The body is assembled from several separate sections. The connection of the latter with the lower part of the structure is carried out in a special conductor. After completion of the riveting of the joints along the perimeter of the skin, a trench is installed on the boat.

The construction of the casing is carried out with the use of productive press equipment, which allows cold riveting of the seams. The press rivet makes about 60-70% of all the works realized during the production process.

Despite the qualitative assembly and reliable isolation of the joints, the hulls of this series of ships are highly susceptible to discrepancy. Therefore, to ensure continued service, the operation of the boat requires regular maintenance.
