The Fishing Boat is a small fishing trawler used by Chernarussian civilians in ArmA 2.


  • Role:
    • Civilian transportation
« Simple boat used to catch fish in the sea. According to the international Food and Agriculture Organization there are about 4 million of commercial fishing boats worldwide. This is one of them.
Armoury Description


The Fishing Boat is an old but reliable fishing trawler favoured by fisheries and private entities throughout Chernarus.

Aside from fishing, the Fishing Boat is capable of carrying up to seven passengers at a time and is also one of the fastest non-military maritime vessels.

The boat's driver has much better clearance and won't have much of their vision obstructed (unlike the Small Boat).

Although the Fishing Boat is the fastest surface vessels available to civilians, it is painfully slow and will take almost a entire minute to reach its top speed of 20 km/h. Furthermore, none of the passengers are protected by small arms and combined with its slow speed, renders the driver an easy target for snipers.

Crew Capacity
Fishing Boats require a crew of just one, the driver themselves. They can transport up to seven additional passengers at a time.


The Fishing Boat has a base armour value of 10.


The hull can only survive 10 points of damage before its integrity fails.


The engine can incur up to 12 points of damage before failing.


  • Alongside Small Boats, ArmA 2 was the first title in the series to feature civilian boats.
  • Heavily rusted shipwrecks can be found submerged beneath and beached ashore along some areas of Altis and Stratis in ArmA 3, though the Fishing Boat itself is not actually featured as a usable vehicle.
