Check All Manufacturers Specifications

We have provided solutions for and shipped thousands of Hov Pod worldwide to companies, goverment agencies and associations.

Note: Some suppliers are a little economic with the truth about payload ratings, if you intend to go near water, all hovercraft create a pressure wave known as The Hump, and generally carry 50% less weight when starting on water (compared to on-land).

Never ask hovercraft supplier – how many seats? Always check the on-water payload capability, to ensure you can get home. Check the weight of passengers and driver, additional equipment. Buyer's Guide

Some conditions make starting on water more difficult, such as loading, wind strength, wind direction, and depth of water – deeper water is easier to start from.
