If you are considering Neoteric hovercraft, you will be in good company. Neoteric has designed and manufactured hovercraft since 1976. Our craft are recognized as the industry standard for rescue, commercial, military and recreational hovercraft, and our clientele now spans fifty countries. Neoteric produces the lightest, most quiet craft in the industry, and we constantly improve our hovercraft designs and develop new models.

The following selected references from across the world actively endorse Neoteric hovercraft and accessory products for recreational, rescue, commercial and military use. The most experienced is the North Muskegon Fire Department, which has conducted more than 170 rescue missions in the hovercraft they built in 1984 from a Neoteric hovercraft kit.
