who needs water when
you have a hovercraft? And, Neoteric Hovercraft, Inc., of Terre
Haute, Indiana, USA, the worlds original light hovercraft
manufacturer, has just introduced a radically different one,
the Hovertrek. Its the most advanced and maneuverable amphibious
vehicle yet for commercial and recreational use! Custom designed
by Australias premier designer, David Atkins, the Hovertrek
won the Hoverclub of America's 1999 Innovation Award.
This exciting machine incorporates unique features, which enable
it to access places that are simply unreachable by any other
vehicle. Now, with precise helicopter like control, it has the
ability to go in reverse. The Hovertrek has low environmental
impact, miserly fuel usage, and acts as an extremely stable
work or rescue platform.
A 53 HP, 2-cycle engine powers the
ultra sleek Hovertrek, which measures 12 feet long, 6 feet
8 inches wide and weighs a mere 430 lbs, according to Christopher
Fitzgerald, founder of Neoteric. And it has an incredible
120-mile range on a single fill up. An extensive array
of options are available to Hovertrek owners including: computer
controlled reverse thrust for breaking and backing up (a feature
exclusive to Neoteric craft), side by side or in-line seating
for 4, a fiberglass hard top 4-seater cabin enclosure, an
easy on/easy off trailer, as well as communications equipment
such as GPS satellite navigation and marine radio.
Cost efficiency was a major factor
in the design of the Hovertrek, as it sells for the price
of a mid-size pick-up truck. Its unlimited applications include
everything from ecological and wildlife work, to ice rescue
and a variety of recreational activities. Neoteric provides
free pilot and maintenance training with Hovertrek purchase.
For the do-it-yourselfer, the Hovertrek is available partially
assembled at a substantially reduced price, and comes with
a 4 hour, detailed assembly instruction video.
And oh, if you happen to have some
water available, it will hover over that too!
