The Mini is “the go-kart” of hovercraft - it is ideal for kids of all ages (even the adult ones). A recreational toy, for driving events businesses or even novice racing, this versatile little hovercraft has it all. Piloted whilst kneeling but able to be controlled in a seated position, this hovercraft is better suited to land and small shallow waters. The Mini has proved itself time and time again, the payload is second to none for a craft it’s size and with its lightweight hull the speed is remarkably surprising…
The Mini XL
A slightly larger version of The Mini and with a more powerful engine, The Mini XL is also a must for driving events businesses. This craft out of our smaller hovercraft range is better suited to open water and can be used also as a single seat cruiser. In fact, several have completed The Rhone Raid, over 600kms during a week’s cruise through France. The Mini range maybe our smallest but they sure do provide the biggest smiles.
At just 2.9m long, you cannot help but smile when you get behind the controls. It's like driving the hovercraft version of a go kart! Flying over land and water, across grass, sand, mudflats, ice, snow - it's simply a huge amount of fun.
The Freestyle is the ultimate corporate hovercraft. Piloted in a fully seated position, it can be piloted by novices, can be used to give rides, has a large payload and can also be used as a long-distance cruiser. Boasting a com padded upholstered jockey style front seat and an upholstered padded removable rear t-seat, this hovercraft is a simple form of its predecessor The Marlin, a no thrills hovercraft that has all the performance benefits of our higher specification models. To show its durability and reliability we have taken 2 of these hovercraft across The English Channel! And back! Twice!
