Planning to buy a Hovercraft? 

How you intend to use your hovercraft will determine the type you should consider. Hovercraft are very weight sensitive; so consider the choice the designer has to make between performance, durability / product life and safety.

Race hovercraft have hulls made from extremely thin glass fibre that will flex when you push your thumb against the material. As hovercraft can drift, if you meet an obstacle in your path, the impact could cause considerable damage and be expensive to repair. Race hovercraft do not perform so well over water, and lack many safety features we consider to be important. Race hovercraft tend to have low freeboard, exposed engines and unprotected hot exhaust systems, they lack fan guarding at the rear of the duct, have difficulty when starting on water.

The Hov Pod Hovercraft models are either constructed from High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) or Carbon Fibre / Kevlar Composite, so they are far more durable for leisure, commercial, rescue, survey and patrol applications. We fit front and rear fan guards. We protect the engine and exhaust systems. Hov Pod hovercraft have high freeboard design, so are unlikely to sink.

Hovercraft Skirts

The Hov Pod has segmented skirts so that if you damage one section, just that segment can be replaced, rather than the whole skirt, so this reduces running costs. We rejected the materials other suppliers use – we tested neoprene coated nylon but found this degrades when exposed to UV or sunlight. We also tried Hypalon, but found this to tear too easily – we don’t want to make money through providing frequent replacements.  We don’t want to saddle customers with frequent shipping costs. We now fit Polyurethane coated anti-rip nylon weave 375 Gsm skirts, and supply these to customers with hovercraft purchased from other suppliers. The Hov Pod skirt design and air management system is designed to prevent ploughing problems – we don’t say ploughing is impossible on a Hov Pod, but we do try to prevent ploughing issues. Request our buyers guide if unfamiliar with hovercraft characteristics and terms such as ploughing and hump.
