Hovercraft Engines / models weight payload
We offer either the 65HP or 120HP Turbo powered engines on our hovercraft to ensure that you have power in reserve. One thing to check before you buy hovercraft – when starting from an on-water start, you need to ensure that you have sufficient power to get started and overcome the pressure wave that affects all hovercraft, known as The Hump. In the past, we used and rejected Hirth and Moto Guzzi engines, in favor of Rotax and Weber Automotive engines. If you plan to stop on water, and start from an on-water start, be sure that you ask manufacturers what the model’s on-water payload is – all hovercraft carry 50% more weight on land, some manufacturers confuse and hide their on-water capability.
The Hov Pod SPX TCC HP65 will lift up to 275 Kgs or 606 pounds, the Hov Pod SPX TCC 120HP Turbo will lift up to 325 Kgs or 717 pounds from on water – if you fail to get this detail right, you may not be able to get home ok, and have to rely on the rescue services to recover your hovercraft.
We have introduced a new model which can seat up to 7, the Hov Pod Carbon Infinity 120HP Turbo will be constructed from carbon fibre / Kevlar / HDPE. Since the size is bigger, it will lift more weight, either up to 500 Kgs 1105 pounds when starting from water, or up to 675 Kgs 1491 pounds when starting on land. Sorry, there will be no secondhand versions of this model for quite some time, demand is high for new models.
