The Hov Pod SPX TCC range of hovercraft are unique in that the hulls are manufactured from High Density Polyethylene. (HDPE) HDPE is far stronger than glass fibre, HDPE is extremely buoyant. HDPE is also significantly easier to modify and adapt to attach mounts and extra equipment.

All terrain vehicles need to be very strong and take punishment in day to day use over ice, water debris, stones, rocks, rough terrain and bumps and dips in the surface. The Hov Pod SPX is unique as it is the only hovercraft made from HDPE. The weight to strength ratio for TCC HDPE is superior to nearly all other materials, this is why it is used for kayaks and HDPE has also been used to create artificial joints, ice rink puck impact plates and F1 crash barriers.

Some suppliers fit neoprene coated nylon or Hypalon skirts that need constant replacements. We fit polyurethane / nylon skirts – they cost more to fit, but last much longer. The Hov Pod hovercraft skirt material is a unique specially developed weave & fabric combination with anti-rip properties & incredible wear resistance. It means you can operate in greater safety & will not be forever changing or repairing skirts. Individual skirt sections & the unique IAPSS skirt design gives far greater flexibility, continued operational ability & high speed safety.

Hov Pod manufactures a wide range of hovercraft suitable for a wide range of applications, to include leisure, military patrol, rescue, survey and commercial applications.

Things you should know about Hovercraft. 

Hovercraft are weight dependent vehicles - in the past, some suppliers have cut corners to reduce weight.  Smaller hovercraft hulls are typically manufactured from lightweight glass fibre and shatter on impact, smaller hovercraft typically have under powered light weight engines that lack reserve power for on-water starting. Some suppliers up-rate their engines to squeeze more power from cheaper engines – check how this might affect engine warranty. Smaller hovercraft suffer safety issues, some suppliers fail to fit rear fan guards to save weight and increase performance. Some suppliers fit neoprene coated nylon or Hypalon skirts that need constant replacements.
