Can the HovPod leisure hovercraft carry passengers?
The HovPod leisure hovercraft is weight dependent and the craft has been tested to take up to 250Kg or 310Kg on water, depending on the size of engine plus additional 25% weight on land (hence 312Kg or 387Kg on land starts). We recommend the HovPod leisure hovercraft as a 2+ model where each owners individual circumstances will dictate exactly how many people can be carried (it could vary from 2 large to 4 small people). Many small hovercraft have difficulties starting on water, so please refer to our specifications page to understand “Getting over Hump” a hovercraft term used to describe starting on water. Be sure to check manufacturers payload specification for starting on water – many can’t, some even sink!
