Not all hovercraft are made equal. If you’re a first-time buyer, it’s important to know what to look for in a craft before investing in one. The following is a brief introduction of things to consider when buying a hovercraft.
The first consideration when purchasing any kind of vehicle should always be safety. Research the company that’s manufacturing and selling the hovercraft to ensure there are no safety violations or complaints against them. Also, never buy a DIY vehicle that was assembled by a hobbyist or novice builder—hovercraft are complex machines that require experience and education to build safely. All Air Rider hovercraft are expertly built in Parry Sound, Ontario and are sold by our experienced sales representatives.
There’s a misconception that hovercraft are loud. A properly constructed machine that’s using the right engine will be quiet in operation. Air Rider Hovercraft is specially designed with a low revving 4-stroke engine fitted with a quiet exhaust muffler and a slow rotating variable pitch propeller to reduce the amount of noise the vehicle produces.
Take the time to inspect how the hull and skirt were constructed and what material was used. Some hovercraft manufacturers use inferior products to increase profit margins—which can compromise the safety and reliability of the craft. Air Rider takes pride in our superior construction and design. All our craft have a five-chamber inflated hull and a unique skirt design that incorporates two popular styles: the loop skirt and segment skirt.
When considering buying a hovercraft there are many things to consider. Take time to research different models and brands and make sure to ask a lot of questions!
