8 seater Hovercraft
New carbon Fibre hovercraft seats up to 8 people
The new Hov Pod Carbon Infinity 120HP Turbo model has flexible seating to provide 3 seats inline, or seating for 6 on bench seats plus 2 in-line.
The turbo powered 120HP engine in combination with the extremely tough yet lightweight carbon fibre hull can lift 1492 pounds from an on-land start, or 1105 pounds when starting from on water. This unique hovercraft has Kevlar – “bullet proof” – underside protection and HDPE trim – no other hovercraft has this combination of materials so cannot compete on price / payload, or durability, many hovercraft are made from thin glass fibre hulls that easily crack and require frequent repair. The unique design approach focus on safety and ease of use.
We are receiving many dealer enquiries from companies who supply to rescue organisations, for military applications and many commercial applications such as in the oil exploration industry. This hovercraft promises to be difficult to match on price and capability simply due to our use of carbon fibre. What’s more, the engineering components are tried, tested and fully proven through use on other models.
There are many situations when hovercraft become far more useful for rescue, from mud, ice and during flooding emergencies. Hovercraft do not have a propeller, and float on a cushion of air, so they can be used at low tide. During floods, waters become contaminated with sewerage overflow, and debris such as floating plastic bags can put a rescue boat propeller out of action. No rescuer wants to wade through contaminated water, sewerage spreads diseases, and drinking water supplies become contaminated.
Price and availability
Priced to be very competitive against other hovercraft of this size, just compare the price per pound of on-water payload to appreciate the affordability of this model. Larger hovercraft have very long delivery times, whereas we can usually supply within 8 weeks or shorter time periods in an emergency. Contact us for a detailed quote.
