The Freestyle XL

The ‘Freestyle XL’ is the larger upgrade to the standard Freestyle hovercraft model, lengthened for larger payloads and is ideal as a no-frills commercial support craft.

This versatile hovercraft can be flown easily, it is extremely nimble and cost effective being light-weight and economical. It can be used by activity centres to give passenger rides, or as a long-distance cruiser.

Boasting a padded, upholstered jockey-style seat, this hovercraft is a simpler form of our upgraded Beast XL model, which has all the performance benefits of our higher specification models.

To show its durability and reliability we have taken 2 Freestyle hovercraft across the English Channel and back, twice! So we are proud to introduce this upgraded ‘XL version.
