Neoteric Hovercraft Technology


Unchallenged fan technology

The hovercraft fan technology originated by Neoteric is unrivalled in the hovercraft industry. Its small diameter/high efficiency fan not only makes the HoverTrek™ the quietest hovercraft available, it also gives it precision performance capabilities.

A slow fan tip speed coupled with minimal clearance between the fan and intake ducting is responsible for the low noise level of Neoteric hovercraft.

The HoverTrek™ also has a smaller fan than any other hovercraft on the market. Having the thrust near the traveling surface allows stability. This means that unlike other hovercraft, the Neoteric HoverTrek™ stays level (trimmed) through changes in side wind and thrust. It also improves banking in turns and makes the HoverTrek™ much more stable – and more aesthetically appealing in design - than hovercraft with larger fans.
