Commercial Hovercrafts

Commercial Hovercrafts

Commercial Hovercrafts are used for all sorts of different applications – take bait digging for example.

Anglers pay lots of money for bait, so the best bait digging locations are kept secret.

We offer either the 65HP or 120HP Turbo powered engines on our hovercraft to ensure that you have power in reserve – 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 favour of Rotax and Weber Automotive engines. Some suppliers fit cheaper low powered engines and then try to up-rate them, but such modification invalidates the engine manufacturer’s warranty; all our craft ship with full engine manufacturer’s warranty. 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 are introducing a new model which can seat up to 7, the Hov Pod Carbon Infinity 120HP Turbo will be constructed from carbon fibre. Since the size is bigger, it will lift more weight, either up to 450 Kgs 995 pounds when starting from water, or up to 675 Kgs 1491 pounds when starting on land. This model should ship from March 2014 subject to final testing.

In summary,

Hov Pod SPX TCC HP65 will lift up to 275 Kgs 606 pounds from on-water, or up to 412 Kgs 910 pounds if starting your journey on land (flying over water but not stopping or re starting on water)
Hov Pod SPX TCC 120HP Turbo will lift up to 325 Kgs or 717 pounds from on-water, or up to 487 Kgs 1077 pounds if starting your journey on land (flying over water but not stopping or re starting on water)
Hov Pod Carbon Infinity 120HP Turbo will lift up to 450 Kgs or 995 pounds from on-water, or up to 675 Kgs 1491 pounds if starting your journey on land (flying over water but not stopping or re starting on water)
