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!
