Century Drive Systems, Inc. is a manufacturer of airboat belted reduction drive units (transmissions) and airboat component parts for the Airboat Industry. We commonly refer to our belted transmissions as a drive units, or airboat drive units. We have several models and ratios to choose from.
The CH-2 airboat drive unit is our 4" wide belt drive system. The CH-3 airboat drive unit is a 5" wide belted reduction unit and our most popular airboat product. The all new CH-4 airboat drive unit has a 5" wide, 14mm belted drive unit and is now available for immediate shipment. Our CH-3 Longbelt airboat drive unit lowers your heavy center of gravity by separating the engine crankshaft center and propeller shaft by 41.8 inches. Our CH-3 Counter Rotators can be used with any of the standard CH-3 or the CH-3 Long belt drive units to create an awesome amount of thrust with the same power plant. We are also offering the Counter Rotating unit in the CH-4 with steeper ratios.The Briggs Mini Drive Unit is for the one or two passenger 10' to 15' ft light weight boat systems. This lower cost boat can open a vast market at $7,000.00 to $11,000.00 dollars for a complete boat and trailer. A big portion of the general public can not afford the $25,000.00 to $45,000.00 dollar airboats.
