Today is a very important one for us as we rebrand, restructure and rename Flying Fish Hovercraft Ltd. From today, Flying Fish will become a brand name of our new company –
The British Hovercraft Company Limited.
Why have we done this? Well, in the last year, we’ve built the utility and commercial side of Flying Fish and we believe ‘The British Hovercraft Company’ better represents what we do. With the adoption of the Hovercraft Code of Practice, we’ve found many more applications for small hovercraft are open to us than previously and have recently supplied small hovercraft for intertidal survey, crew transfer and to private owners using their hovercraft for use on frozen rivers and shallow estuaries.
‘Flying Fish’ is probably the most recognisable brand of personal and leisure hovercraft in the world, with over 1000 Snapper, Marlins and Coastal-Pro’s sold over the last 16 years. And the Flying Fish name remains to represent our recreational range – still a massive part of our business.
So – its business as usual coupled with ‘all change’ here at The British Hovercraft Company! Together with the name change, we’re currently undergoing an exciting period of restructuring with regards how we manufacture our hovercraft as we prepare for what we are confident will be a very busy 2015.
The website is now at www.britishhovercraft.com but you’ll still be able to contact us on the existing email addresses, and the phone number is still (01304) 619820 – just be ready for us to answer the phone with “Flying British Hovercraft Company” as we try to shake the habit of the last 16 years!
Best Wishes from Russ, Emma, Ivan and all the team at The British Hovercraft Company Ltd.
