Where do Duck Boats Come From?


If you’re wondering “where did duck boats come from?” we have your answer.

Our sister station KMOV tells us exactly how this amphibious vehicle came to life and it’s extensive history.

“General Motors developed the duck boat in the early 40s to help the allied forces, including the United States, during World War II. 

The military grade amphibious vehicle could operate on both land and water and get troops the supplies and reinforcements they desperately needed.

After the war ended in 1945, the military allowed the public to buy extra supplies, like these vehicles. 

Today, some are still used by tour companies across the country, while others have been built using a similar design.”
