Seller Notes: Project kit 80% complete
 
This custom designed hovercraft is expedition sized and perfect for taking family or groups to places un-accessible by any other means.  

The composite foam fiberglass construction makes this hovercraft is impossible to sink, so it can go on open waters as well as well as land, snow or ice. This hovercraft will be impossible to sink when engine is off, so it can be used for fishing and hunting as well.  Can be fitted with a weatherproof heated canopy   Low cost maintenance and reliable in all weather conditions.

This project is the nearly complete body. Compare to $19,000+ for a kit from the manufacturer.

Also available is a complete running 84 hp Subaru EA-82 engine (white Subaru Loyale) and all wiring for an additional $500. This hovercraft is designed to be powered by a 4-cylinder engine and everything you'd ever want in a hovercraft. It was designed for people who love to play. For the family that gets together for fishing, skiing, cruising and all-around fun, this is your vehicle.  It will go where any boat or quad will go and a lot more places! It will take you places other craft have never been.

This hovercraft can be completed with wing kit (not included) from the manufacturer and fly up to 10 feet high over waves, rocks, beaches and fields in ground effect. The wings roll up and can be stored aboard the craft for easy transportation and rapid deployment.  The wing in ground effect (WIG) turns this hovercraft into a flying boat.

The hovercraft is designed to be built with 4 removable box seats and one full-length stationary seat that also serves as the lift system belt guard. For flying in ground effect, the four box seats are removed and the pilot and passenger sit on the center seat. The pilot sits in front of the forward wing spar and passengers just behind.

With the wing kit on, flight controls consist of two movable rudders and a large elevator. A joystick gives precise control through a simple cable steering system that is designed for easy pre-flight inspections. Calm winds are ideal for the most enjoyable flying. Open the throttle and hold a slight backpressure on the stick. When the air speed indicator shows 55 mph pull back a little more. The nose begins to rise and the water starts to fall away. It feels like you are 10 feet high when the bottom of the craft is only 1 to 4 feet above the surface. Reduce power to maintain the minimum flying speed (55 - 60 mph) and try some gentle turns. A small force on the stick left or right results in a bank angle and gentle turn. Pull back on the joystick and the hovercraft will climb a little higher to clear large boat wakes or debris. Fly over waves and across land without noticing any change in the smooth ride. Landing is very easy because your runway is always underneath you. You don't have to line up on the centerline, just reduce power, level the wings and you are down. Pull right out of the water and park on land. No tying up is needed.

No special license required or pilots license. No special permits. These vehicles are registered as boats and follow the same rules and regulations.

If you can operate a boat, you’re qualified to fly a hovercraft.

Always kept stored inside and ready to load on your flat deck trailer. Item must be picked up in person in Esterhazy, SK.  This craft does not come with a trailer.

You can have it completed and ready to fly within a month. Moving and it must sell. For more details please call 1 (306) 740-0599
