This picture was taken last saturday when Mr Roy Thompson took delivery of his new Black & White Marlin II. After a training session we went for a short cruise around the corner of the south-east coast and was thrilled to see a couple of seal's swimming beside us and generally having a play with our craft.



Keep posted for the next post when we go for a cruise on the Swale & Medway rivers in the very near future or join us at www.facebook/flyingfishhovercraft and keep up to date with all the other events that happen with the worlds leading manufacturer or lights-sport cruiser hovercraft.

Flying Fish Hovercaddy....

Hovercraft have been used for many purposes over the years but none quite as unusual as this..

This picture was taken during a demonstration at Wensum Valley Hotels. The demonstartion was held on the golf course and the Flying Fish Marlin II is one of very few vehicles that could have spun around the greens without causing any damage at all to the perfectly kept grass.




After a brief training session Mr Basil Todd easily learned to master the controls of the Marlin II. The hovercraft really turned the heads of the golfers who were on the course that afternoon as we glided from green to lake to fairway and back again.

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.
