Hov Pod Hovercraft Options
Hovercraft options are available for both commercial and recreational purposes. Hov Pod can be fully customized to fit your project, task, situation or adventure. Both the High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) and Carbon Fiber hull construction of the Hov Pod lends itself to customization, unlike glass fiber which requires backing plates and reinforcement to take additional units. When customers ask us to add a new feature or option to the Hov Pod, we like to respond with a “Can Do” attitude. Here are some hovercraft options requested that we have been asked to add.
We recommend electric start, gauge panel and thicker skirt option (lasts longer, so more cost effective). There are many other options available but not all options are necessary, it depends on your circumstances.
We offer a choice of 2 stroke or 4 stroke turbo charged engines. Too much choice can be overwhelming at times, so be sure to ask us and other suppliers important questions to ensure you get the best Hov Pod to suit your needs.
We do not like to assume that you are an expert, if you are a first time owner, please go to the “Describe A Project” page here we will ask you a series of questions to develop a checklist to help you choose the best model and hovercraft options to suit your particular requirements. If you are an expert go to the “Get a Quote” page and simply select the model and hovercraft options you would like.
