World’s leading research institutes use Neoteric hovercraft

We’re honored to announce that a Neoteric commercial hovercraft is now being utilized by several of the world's highest-ranking research institutes.

Brokered by China Haipai Hovercraft, Ltd., the leading aquaculture and marine science institutions in China have purchased a 4-passenger Neoteric HoverTrek™ to use in research operations. These include Yellow Sea Fisheries Research Institute, Shanghai Ocean University, the Ministry of Agriculture Ocean Fisheries Training Center, the China Fisheries Network, and the Chinese Academy of Fishery Sciences.

Through Hovercraft Training Centers, Neoteric President Chris Fitzgerald traveled to Qingdao, China the week of Nov. 20 to conduct hovercraft pilot and maintenance training at Yellow Seas Fisheries Research Institute.

Neoteric Hovercraft rides & tours in south Florida

All Florida Watersports, Inc. on Marco Island, Florida, specializes in WaveRunner and parasailing experiences. But they were looking for something to spice up their business – and a Neoteric Hovercraft filled the bill.

Owner Ryan Peacock says, “We were looking for something a bit different. We started looking on the web, and there you guys were – something to do other than WaveRunners and typical boat rentals.”

After ordering a 6-passenger Neoteric commercial hovercraft, Ryan and his coworkers learned to fly and maintain their craft at Hovercraft Training Centers. As he said, “The first step is to know what a hovercraft does and how it operates.”
Ryan Peacock (2nd from left), and his crew complete HTC training with instructor Steve Stafford (3rd from left).
After their training, the team was were impressed with the Hovertrek’s ease of operation, it’s maneuverability, and the smoothness of its transitions: “It’s just incredible how there’s no transition; from land to water you don’t feel a thing – it’s amazing!”

The Neoteric Hovertrek™ flies safely and easily over most any surface.
Ryan says their new hovercraft will add a whole new dimension to their business. “We’re going to do commercial rides and tours. Now we’ll be able to land on beaches and islands. It’s just a completely different niche that’s never been done here.”

It isn’t easy for an amphibious vehicle to impress a group of guys who have been in the waterbound tourist trade for 25 years, who say they “eat, drink and sleep watersports” … but the Neoteric Hovertrek™ certainly did. Just imagine how their customers are going to react!

See how you react: Take a Neoteric hovercraft Test Flight at Hovercraft Training Centers.

Jumping on the Hovercraft Bandwagon

Not long ago, hovercraft were not widely known. Then Bubba’s Hover took the world by storm, and now everyone seems to be jumping on the hovercraft bandwagon. As they say, ‘Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery,” – but the important word to keep in mind here is ‘imitation!’

Even reputable companies like Fiat are trying to create their own public relations storm by ‘hovering’ on the coattails of the Bubba phenomenon. This week, the MSC Divina cruise ship arrived in Miami, escorted by a fleet of “Fiat 500 Hovercraft” …

But wait – those Fiats are in no way hovercraft. A hovercraft is “a member of the air cushion vehicle (ACV) family that flies above the earth's surface on a cushion of air, powered by an engine that provides both the lift cushion and the thrust for forward or reverse movement.

On the contrary, these vehicles appear to move across water like a boat, with a propeller or water jet stuck underneath them - making them no more like a hovercraft than a motorboat is like a hovercraft. Go ahead and call them ‘personal watercraft’ – but they are not hovercraft. It’s kind of like calling a canoe a hot air balloon!

Watch the video – would you call these hovercraft?

And then there’s the GolfBoard™  – not related to hovercraft but probably inspired by Bubba’s Hover. A Kickstarter campaign recently reached its funding goal to produce an electric skateboard golf cart. 

GolfBoard™ image
The upside? This kind of publicity helps increase awareness of legitimate hovercraft – which have apparently triggered a burst of creativity!

And at least these companies haven't carried their imitation to extremes and directly pirated the Neoteric Hovercraft like those in the Hovercraft Ripoff Report

The Neoteric Hovercraft Golf Cart: “Magnificent! We love it!”

The Neoteric Hovercraft Golf Cart is a huge hit in Las Vegas, as a showcased product at the 2013 Caesars Palace Great Gift Wrap UpIn the video clip below, Great Gift Wrap Up attendees Nancy and Frank D’Amico typify people’s reaction to this innovative vehicle - even if they aren’t golfers …

It's a vehicle like no other. As Caesars Palace says, "This is the first time a "jackpot" item is up for grabs: a Neoteric Hovercraft Golf Cart, an exact replica of the BW1 hovercraft golf cart Neoteric designed for Masters Champion Bubba Watson. As one of few built in the world, think of it as an ultra-modern golf cart - on steroids. Behind the wheel, be the James Bond of the golf course, as it effortlessly glides over fairway grass, water, sand traps and ice."

But as the D'Amicos quickly recognized, the Neoteric Hovercraft Golf Cart gives you an incredible drive even if you never swing a golf club. It complies with all U.S. Coast Guard standards and can be flown on any waters, snow or ice worldwide. What other golf cart can you use for river cruising, island hopping, ice fishing, snowmobiling and even surfing across mudflats? This is the one and only.

The Perfect Cure for Cabin Fever

It’s that time of year when outdoor lovers start dreading winter … that is, outdoor lovers who don’t have a hovercraft – who are getting ready to stow away their jet skis, boats, kayaks, canoes and ATVs and then hope for some snowmobile weather.

But you don’t need this whole fleet of vehicles when you have a hovercraft – it’s the only all-in-one, four-season recreational vehicle that replaces them all. What a way to save a bundle of money and guarantee year-round fun!

In a hovercraft, you fly smoothly over land; swift water; shallow or flooded or frozen rivers; sandbars; swampland; mud; snow; and even thin or broken ice – rising above it all on a cushion of air. Hovercraft are not only safer and more fuel-efficient than boats; they’ll take you places that boats and other recreational vehicles just can’t go.
A Neoteric hovercraft flies over thin and broken ice on St. Petersburg Harbor in Russia. 
Why not find out for yourself? Take a Test Flight on a Neoteric hovercraft at Hovercraft Training Centers and experience the greatest way on earth for an outdoor lover to dump the winter doldrums.

And why not beat the budget blues at the same time: Check out the Neoteric Trade-in Showroom for great deals on recreational hovercraft.

Hovercraft Mean Business

Say “hovercraft” and the first word that comes to most people’s minds is “fun.” But hovercraft are much more than that. Besides saving lives in rescue operations, Neoteric hovercraft are used throughout the world in a wide variety of critical commercial operations - including oil spill cleanup, environmental restoration, gold mining, mosquito control, wildlife conservation and commercial fishing.

All these uses have one common factor: these Neoteric commercial hovercraft are all expertly operated and maintained by pilots trained at Hovercraft Training Centers.

As one example, meet James Walker, an HTC-trained commercial hovercraft pilot for Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Co., the largest provider of dredging services in the U.S. 
Here, James Walker and his team learn to conduct a preflight inspection during their HTC training,
adjusting rudders for maximum precision during flight.
James’ training and GLLD’s Neoteric hovercraft soon proved their value in an environmental restoration project on Pelican Island, a key barrier island off the coast of Louisiana. Pelican Island, one of American’s richest fisheries, is crucial for protecting Louisiana citizens and property against storm surges, but it has one of the highest rates of wetlands loss in the world.

If one block of New York City disappeared every hour, the nation would be outraged,” states Louisiana Congressman Cedric Richmond. “Well, Louisiana loses a football field of wetlands every hour, which is crippling the state and the nation. It affects our seafood supply, gas and oil reserves, and storm protection. Reversing this trend is a critical national priority.

With the help of James and GLDD’s Neoteric Hovercraft, the Pelican Island project is creating more than 580 acres and 3 miles of new dunes and marshland for the people of Louisiana.

… and you’ll never again think of hovercraft as just for fun.

Russian hovercraft counterfeiters: Air Wing and MosHovercraft

It’s long been said that ‘Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.’ If that old saying is true, then Neoteric should be flattered, since the Hovertrek™ is becoming one of the most copied hovercraft in the world.

The problem, however, is that knockoffs of Rolex watches are one thing; counterfeit products that threaten consumer safety are an entirely different matter. Particularly since hovercraft are increasingly used in rescue operations, counterfeit hovercraft pose a serious threat to the lives of first responders and to the lives of those they are tasked to save.

In the past we’ve reported the offenses of Hi Tech International S.r.l. of Gorgonzola, Italy. Now two Russian companies have joined HTI’s dubious rank: Air Wing (aka Production Company MSK and 000 Aeroslava) and MosHovercraft Group (aka Globatek Group JSC). Counterfeiting is becoming an increasing problem in Russia: a Russian Interior Ministry investigation estimates that up to a third of everything sold to consumers in Russia is counterfeit. 

The offenses committed by Air Wing and MosHovercraft include:

Industrial and economic espionage; theft of technology and trade secrets: Air Wing counterfeited the patented Neoteric Hovertrek™ and is using the model name “Niaterek” to market their pirated hovercraft. MosHovercraft is selling illegally “restyled” copies of the Hovertrek™.
Illegal copies of the Neoteric Hovertrek™ in production at Air Wing’s assembly facility in Russia.
Intellectual property infringement: The Air Wing and MosHovercraft websites and promotional efforts contain material plagiarized from the copyrighted Neoteric website.
Screenshot of a MosHovercraft website page, with numerous photos plagiarized from the Neoteric website.
Neoteric and our licensed agent in Russia, Christy Hovercraft, are diligently working with Russian governmental officials to curtail the illegal actions of these companies. In the meantime, we advise all potential hovercraft buyers to meticulously research companies to be certain you’re purchasing from the original, reputable, experienced manufacturer and not a counterfeiter. Your life could depend upon it.

Hovercraft: Fly Before You Buy

How many people buy a car before they learn how to drive? Even as a licensed driver, would you buy a car without taking it out for a demo? Of course you wouldn’t. 

That’s why Neoteric has a “Fly Before You Buy” policy: We highly recommend that anyone considering purchasing a hovercraft first enroll in a flight training course on a Neoteric craft at Hovercraft Training Centers. Here’s an example of the benefits of this approach …

Rusty Roush, a CPA from Amarillo, Texas, was considering a career change. He was familiar with hovercraft, but the Bubba’s Hover video piqued his interest, so he contacted Neoteric, explaining, “I’m trying to see if it’s something that’s fun and easy to learn, and what business applications it might have.” Roush took advantage of Neoteric’s “Fly Before You Buy” policy and enrolled in Hovercraft Training Centers’ Standard Training Course: 
After a morning of classroom instruction, instructor Chris Fitzgerald trains Roush to conduct a thorough preflight inspection.
Fitzgerald, in the pilot seat, shows Roush how easily the Neoteric Hovertrek™ transitions from land to water.
Roush, now at the controls, learns how to operate the patented reverse thrust buckets that give the Hovertrek™ its incomparable maneuverability.
Back at headquarters, Roush (center), accompanied by his wife Debbie, accepts his hovercraft pilot certification.
Even though Roush was impressed by the Neoteric hovercraft and by his training course, he and his wife were uncertain that a hovercraft was right for them. For one reason, “We don’t have a lot of water in Amarillo,” he said. “It’s not like here, where you can just bop over to the river. I guess I’m just exploring …

And that’s exactly the right reason to enroll in hovercraft training: to explore – and to save money, as well. If you decide a hovercraft is right for you, Neoteric will deduct the cost of your HTC training course from the purchase price. If not, you’ve invested very little for a once-in-a-lifetime adventure that enables you to make an informed decision!

HudsonMOD features Neoteric HoverGolf™ Cart

The tsunami of publicity about Bubba’s Hover rushes on. The Neoteric HoverGolf™ Cart is featured this month in HudsonMOD, a luxury lifestyle magazine that prides itself on treating its New York City readers to “the best the world has to offer” …

THE WOW – You know you want it

Neoteric HoverGolf™ Cart

A video that could have been taken on any golf course shows your run-of-the-mill golf cart winding down a paved pathway. But suddenly, a larger cart flashes across the screen. Never mind that the driver of this floating golf cart is none other than 2012 Masters champion Bubba Watson, who deadpans with a nonchalant stare back at a gawking golfer. The golfer looks like he’s seen something he can’t very well explain. Yes, that’s a hovercraft on the links. Welcome to the future.

What started as a clever marketing stunt earlier this year by Thinkmodo to drive interest to Bubba Watson’s promotional deal with Oakley has had another, truly astonishing, effect. Since being uploaded to YouTube, the video “Bubba’s Hover” has gone viral, receiving more than eight million views thus far and garnering worldwide media attention for Neoteric, the manufacturers of rescue, military and commercial hovercrafts - and now the first hovercraft golf cart on the planet, the BW1

Since the viral video hit YouTube, we’ve been deluged with inquiries from all over the world,” says Filip Przybysz, an executive at Neoteric. The prototype bearing Watson’s initials has given rise to 100 limited-edition HoverGolf carts that are custom manufactured at the close of each sale. “At this point, we have shipped the first order and are in the process of shipping the second to customers in the US,” he says.

One of the recipients of the accommodating four-passenger, two-golf-bag, 65-horsepower vehicle is the Windy Knoll Golf Club, in Springfield, OH, which recently became the first golf course in the US to purchase two $58,000 hovercrafts with lift-up roofs and the latest noise-reducing fan technology. But why wait for your local golf course to follow suit with futuristic rides? You could be piloting a cushion of air across water hazards in no time with your very own personal hovercraft.

Finally, a reason to smile about spraying a shot: You get to drive in a BW1 to find the ball. The future has arrived. Score!


As the article says, “Why wait for your local golf course to offer futuristic rides?  Sign up right now for a Hovercraft Test Flight or Training Course in a Neoteric Hovercraft at Hovercraft Training Centers!

Enjoy a few photos of the Neoteric HoverGolf™ Cart in action ...

Rescue Hovercraft for Sale

First responders worldwide recognize that the hovercraft is the only rescue vehicle able to perform fast, safe rescue operations on swift water, thin or broken ice, flood waters, mud and snow. Because it safely hovers 9 inches above the terrain, a hovercraft keeps the rescue team above the danger – not in it – and gives rescuers access to areas boats and helicopters can't reach.

This is an opportunity for your team to boost its rescue capabilities: the first of two new Model 5852 red stock hovercraft from the Neoteric factory:

The craft features a 100 HP Hirth engine, reverse thrust buckets for braking and backing up, and inline seating for four. This deluxe rescue model is also equipped with a radio, PA system, siren, 400,000 cp searchlight, salt water marinization package and a stretcher mount. This new hovercraft is offered for $65,860.13. A custom hovercraft trailer is also available for $2,230. 

Government assistance is often available for the purchase of rescue equipment. You can research your options at the links below:
