Hovercraft from the English company Reaction International Limited is very easy and fun to drive. The experience of traveling with 45 mph on this air balloon is truly exceptional and not your everyday thrill, however the cruising speed is 30 mph which is still good.
This secure amphibious vehicle has no problem running (hovering) over plenty of flat terrain types including concrete, water, ice, snow, sand and grass. It is much stronger and floats better than the models from carbon fibers, and it is suitable for more than a small family trip to the local holiday destination. It can be used effectively for hunting and fishing, security patrols, commercial and saving use. It is equipped with an engine, but it can be bought even without it, so you can customize it and finish it according to your needs. Learning curve is not very steep and you can drive it worry free in minutes.
Special polyethylene, also used in construction and manufacturing process of artificial ankle in medicine, is used here combined with some additional composite layer so that the hull can endure pretty hard impacts and is even less vulnerable than before. It can be bought in 2 versions depending on the engine, SPX 65 and SPX 72 for three persons, with engines of 65 and 72 hp, and SPX 120 for more people and professional use. Both versions hover at about 25 cm from the ground, the consumption is not very big and the noise level very acceptable. The seats are comfortable, and there is a special section dedicated for supplies, food, drinks and ice… Leave your yacht in this baby and continue on the shore to the market for supplies without even stopping. City streets will be no problem at all.
Much recommended for anyone with a kid in his heart. It breaks all the previous rules for all-terrain driving standards. Did we mention? On a dry surface it has 4×4 off-road capabilities. The starting price in UK is about £20,000 and we also want one.
