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.

Free Guide

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.
