These days, if you have the money, you can buy just about anything. Want a Killer Whale Submarine, a Multi-Million Dollar RV, an Animatronic Dinosaur, or a Water Jet Pack? These are all available provided you’ve got the Benjamins. Now you can add Personal Hovercraft to your wishlist, and start saving up to buy this two person hovercraft that can go up to 60 mph over land and water supported by an 8″ cushion of air.
Able to reach locations traditional watercraft cannot access, this personal hovercraft travels briskly over water and land, powered by a 60-horsepower gasoline engine and an efficient 12-volt battery. The two-cycle, two-cylinder air-cooled engine’s powerful 36″ pulley-driven fan keeps the craft aloft on an 8″ cushion of air while propelling it forward at speeds up to 60 miles per hour (top speed is dependent on the route’s surface conditions and operator’s skill).
A handlebar-style tiller allows the rider to control the direction and speed as the hovercraft travels over smooth surfaces such as ice, water, sand, mud, snow, and short grass, in addition to short distances over asphalt, concrete, or dirt roads, with 60 separate nylon/hypalon coated skirt segments providing a durable base. It is even able to climb small, smooth inclines up to 20%. In addition to resting on its cushion of air, the craft floats on water and is fully lined with U.S. Coast Guard-approved flotation foam.
Includes a convenient electric starter, 16″ windshield, six gallon fuel tank, tachometer, 30″ tunnel pad, and two durable aluminum skid rails on bottom hull.
This Personal Hovercraft can be your for “only” $17,000 from Hammacher Schlemmer.
