Hull technology (skids, anti-plow, buoyancy foam)

  • The hull can be seen here assembled underneath the Hovercraft. Neoteric Engineers have put extensive effort into designing the Hovertrek Hull.
  • Hovercraft hull asssembled

  • Here, the anti-plow feature integrated into the hull has been highlighted. Neoteric has integrated technology into the hull that effectively reduces the effects of plow-in.
  • Hovercraft hull anti plow feature

  • The skids of the Hovertrek hull have been highlighted in this photo. The skids consists of multiple layers of extra reinforcement to ensure their durability. These protect the hull from damage caused by abrasion and bottom impacts.
  • protective landing skids

  • Neoteric employees conduct a foaming operation. Every hull is injected with USCG approved closed-cell foam to give it positive buoyancy. Every Hovertrek has at least 100% buoyancy meaning they cannot sink even if the hull is breached.
  • uscg approved flotation foam injection

  • A Hovertrek hull has been cut in half to show the distribution of the buoyancy foam. Notice the absence of any air pockets.
  • hovercraft hull cross section

  • Neoteric employees set to the waters to test the buoyancy of the Hovertrek hull. Since the Hovertrek has over 100% positive buoyancy, it could stay afloat even if broken in half.
