Their amphibious capabilities give Hovercraft significant advantages over any other conventional displacement vessel such as:

  • travel over any surface
  • shortcutting routes
  • travel rivers up as fast as down, irrespective of the current
  • travel in dry water-beds
  • access to terrain, designated unreachable before
  • no collision with debris, logs etc.
  • access to 75% of litoral instead of only 5% with conventional vessels
  • independent from harbours, piers and jetties
