Hovercraft are friendly to nature

New generation Hovercraft have considerable advantages over conventional displacement vessels when it comes to environmental aspects.

  • Hovercraft do not generate wakes even at 50+ knots so no erosion of river benches and beaches
  • landings on solid ground avoids anchoring so corals remain untouched in tropics
  • no turbulence or impact in water as no propeller churns up the water so sealife remains untouched
  • no exhaust gases in water
  • no discharge of oil or gasoline into the water
  • no noise transferrance of propellers into the water
