ASV HOVERCRAFT CHARACTERISTICS

Stability & Safety
The latest aerodynamic principles have been incorporated into the hull design of the e2 Hovercraft giving unsurpassed operational stability and safety. The fibreglass hull combines a high quality finish with low maintenance. This provides excellent performance on any surface. Actually, exceptional performance on any surface (sand, grass, marshes, lakes, rivers, beaches, snow, ice and any other surface). It can do anything a 4 wheel drive can do and it's also a boat

Occupant Protection
The e2 Hovercraft incorporates a sturdy rubber fender around the outer edge to protect the hull on those occasions when the craft is moored to a jetty or pier. The e2 Hovercraft floor of fibreglass and high density foam is rigidly strong and gives greater confidence and security should the underside of the craft impact on a hard object.

Comfort
The high front fairing with wrap around windscreen offers the e2 Hovercraft passengers excellent protection and comfort. The advanced cockpit design allows the area under the front fairing to be utilized for extra storage space, for bulky items such as life jackets. The e2 Hovercraft enjoys generous leg room, and the spacious dry storage area under the seat for personal items.

Fully Aerodynamic Fan Duct
The fan duct features a large contoured intake, and a diverging exhaust providing increased thrust efficiency. In fact up to 20% improvement in efficiency of the forward thrust is directly generated by the duct. It also features optimum design as well as an air spinner cone, which increases air flow, thus maximising lift and thrust. These features also provide the e2 Hovercraft with decreased noise levels, increased speed, improved performance and handling, making this craft stand out amongst its competitors. It is the quietest of its type in the world

Control
Steering of the e2 Hovercraft is a breeze. The pivot point of the rudder is offset from the actual blade itself, allowing the rudder to swing in or out to turn the correct amount of air as required. The net result is that the e2 Hovercraft spins and turns better than ever. Steering is fun and requires very little training

Protected and Water Resistant
Great emphasis is placed on corrosion protection of the electrical system and engine. The battery is located in a water-resistant compartment. Access to the engine for servicing is a mechanic's dream. All fasteners such as nuts and bolts are stainless steel.
