Hov Pod Hovercraft manufacture a range of hovercraft to suit leisure, commercial, rescue, survey and military patrol applications. The Hov Pod is the only hovercraft available with highly durable HDPE (High Density Polyethylene). This material is far more durable than common glass fibre, and has excellent buoyancy properties.
If you are considering purchase of a hovercraft in New Zealand, we can arrange shipping for you.

Hov Pods are designed to be easy to use; we set trim in our factory to dispense with the need for complicated levers and settings.
How do we compare?
We deliver a high value product, and fit polyurethane / nylon skirt material - we rejected Hypalon and Neoprene coated nylon skirts as they tear too easily, and are degraded by UV sunlight.
We fit engines with power in reserve to ensure you get home again - we do not up-rate engine or tweak them since modification invalidates warranty - Hov Pod Hovercraft are shipped with full engine warranty.
We value our customers, their friends, family and spectators, so fit front and essential rear guards to the fan duct - some suppliers scrimp on such details to make their craft go faster, we don't like compromising on safety issues, neither should you.
If you are not familiar with hovercraft and have never operated one before, request our free hovercraft guide which explains terminology such as Hump and Ploughing.
Rep and Dealer Opportunities
Hov Pods are visual and offer a unique drive/flight experience - you float on a cushion of air, and can glide, do 180 turns, 360 spins, and cross from water to land to water without slowing down. Use over any flat surface, water, mud, sand, ice, snow, slipway.
Many of our customers get asked - where did you get this from, where can I buy one? Ask us about opportunities to help us spread the word about Hov Pod.

The Hov Pod SPX TCC 3 to 4 seater hovercraft is designed for leisure / commercial / patrol / rescue use. Our designers were briefed to focus on safety for marine salt-water use, ease of use, durability and ease of service.
Summary of key features:
The unique Hov Pod SPX Hull design is manufactured from High Density Polyethylene. HDPE is very strong and far more durable that GRP, although lightweight, and extremely buoyant. The hull is tested to withstand over one ton in weight before water ingression into the hull.
Engineering parts are computer aided designed, and robotically manufactured using the latest Computer Numerically Controlled processes. Digital control from design to automated manufacturing eliminate human error, “bad days” to ensure that Hov Pod parts are specified to the tightest tolerances possible, to ensure minimal vibration, noise, part wear and fatigue. We operate an aggressive supplier quality control program to weed out any part failings.
The Hov Pod design and manufacturing ethos is to make the safest and easiest to use hovercraft available to ensure total customer satisfaction. Described by the press as the "Mercedes Benz" of hovercraft, supplied to the Red Cross, United Nations, many commercial operators & various SuperYachts, seen on many TV shows and as sold by Harrods.
Available with choice of engines, hull colours and options, or can be supplied as OEM product for local manufacture and customization. The Hov Pod is suitable for a range of commercial, rescue, patrol or leisure activities, please contact us for more detailed information.
