A pump boat is an outrigger canoe powered by a small gasoline or diesel engine. Smaller pump boats might be powered by the sort of small single-cylinder engine which might be used to drive a water pump. Larger ones are often powered by recycled automobile engines.

Pump boats are the utility boat in the Philippines and are used for nearly everything from inter-island transportation, to fishing and even by the Philippine Coast Guard.
