This new colour from Flying Fish Hovercraft is a first and looks great with real contrast between the Black & White. Fitted with headlights, fuel gauge, navigation lights, beacon, bilge pump and rev counter this craft is loaded with some of the extra's offered with the Marlin II hovercraft.


This craft has been purchased by Mr Roy Thompson and stay tuned for the pictures that will be taken when we go out for a cruise and half days training at the weekend on the sea at Ramsgate in Kent.

When Peter Shergold collected his shiny new Marlin II it seemed only right to go for a play and after only 30 minutes he was flying like a pro. It seems that White and Blue has become a popular colour choice at the moment but watch out for the next one, fire engine Red...

Many have questioned why Flying Fish Hovercraft have headlights. After practising night and day the lap record is finally back where it belongs (41.97secs), with our one and only 'Stigg'. Well done Hayley Appleby, but with barely a fraction in it, now it's down to the race of champions in March. With pride on the line the gauntlet has been thrown down and it's time for everyone to show the skill that's needed to be top gun.   

Australia's next top model...
