Now up and running the Flying Fish Hovercraft driving experience in Caboolture, Queensland is proving to be extremely popular not only with the public but with the TV celebrities too it would seem.

In The last couple of weeks Flying Fish Australia has not only been a real asset to the emergency services during the floods they have also been great viewing for the Australian public as well. Check out these great shots of the presenters of 'The Totally Wild Show' and 'The Great South East Program' all getting to grips with the controls of the Flying Fish Marlin II.

This matching pair of craft have been delivered to 2 lucky chaps in Derby and Cheshire. The snow in that part of the country right now is still quite heavy so it will not be long before these beauty's are having some serious festive fun...

These 2 stunning new machines are off to our newest appointed dealer Mr Robert Mcloughlin based in Bude, Cornwall. With lots of new territory to explore these professionally built hovercraft will soon be turning heads all along the south-west coast.

With T.V appearances on Channel Fives The Gadget Show, Coast on the BBC, The T20 Cricket Finals on Sky Sports and Countrywise on ITV it is no wonder that the Marlin II Flying Fish Hovercraft is proving to be so popular.

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...

Well, talking of Ben's that have seen their 'untouchable' times beaten, congratulations to Hayley Appleby on being the first driver to unseat our own Benn Bristow's time around the Flying Fish 'HoverCross' track!

Benns pitifully slow time of 42.31 seconds was eclipsed by Hayley with a blistering 42.03 seconds - meaning she's practically guaranteed a place at The Race of Champions in March!

Well done Hayley - Benn's apparently using the Fish's headlights as he practices round the clock to try and reclaim his lead!

The boys at Ride Leisure have bought themselves a brand new orange and black Marlin II for their activity centre up at Milton Keynes. Having previously operated one of our competitors two-stroke hovercraft, they're chuffed to bits with how much money they're saving on fuel and as you can see from the video below, she moves a bit faster too and with the four stroke engine, reliability is assured! Ride Leisure offer pretty much the best activity centre available, choose from Hovercraft, microlight and aircraft flights, jet skis etc etc - well worth a visit! See their website at for more details. Welcome aboard chaps, we're delighted you're delighted!
