We Build Boats From Start To Finish!

From RIGGING to Rudders …

At R5 Airboats LLC, located in North Bend, Nebraska, we custom build airboats to your specifications. From the rigging frame to the rudders, we create boats to fit your specific wants and needs. From the very first bend of steel to the tightening of last bolt and the final spray of paint, you can be assured your boat is exactly how you envisioned it.

How We Got Our Start

Jesse Cady and his wife Brandi started R5 Airboats LLC in 2013. Born out of a desire to customize their own airboat, Jesse and Brandi use their passion and talent to construct boats to fit their customers’ specific needs.

Jesse attended North Bend Central Junior-Senior High School and began tinkering with mechanics and tools at a young age. He also taught himself how to weld as a teenager. Brandi attended Fremont Middle School and  then Fremont Senior High School. She learned how to weld and work on the boats from her husband.
