Boating on a golf course, a deserted desert, mud flats, or even over snow before skimming
atop the ice
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.
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!
