COMPANYAbout Neoteric & History
Neoteric Hovercraft utilizes three state-of-the-art aircraft engines, all manufactured by Hirth Engine Co. in Germany: the Hirth 2703 (55 hp), 3203 (65 hp) and 3701 (100 hp). These durable 2-cycle engines have a higher power-to-weight ratio than any other light aircraft engine.
When the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency restricted the use of certain plastic fuel tanks, we tested numerous approved tanks. After learning that they were too heavy for efficient hovercraft use, our engineers custom designed a lightweight 13 gallon (52 L) EPA-compliant Universal Aluminum Gas Tank, which fits all Neoteric hovercraft models.
The Neoteric Fuel Gauge Kit is a modified lever and float arm sender; a flexible fuel pickup is available. Our custom design makes nearly 98% of the tank’s fuel available. It also alleviates the problem of fuel pickup when the tank is near empty and your hovercraft is parked on a steep slope.
These LED Work Lamp, 4-1/2" round, prove their worth when you need to clearly see along the sides of your hovercraft – as in rescue operations when over-the-side activities occur. They’re especially valuable when you’re operating your hovercraft between trees and other obstructions as happens in flood rescue operations.
Whether your hovercraft is used for rescue, personal, commercial or military activities, a prime consideration is your safety. There’s no better way to hover safely and comfortably than with Stearns Life Jackets. These are the finest quality available, built to last a lifetime, comfortable to wear, won’t ride up your back while sitting in your hovercraft and their bright colors give you great visibility. You can choose from 3 U.S. Coast Guard approved Stearns Life Vests.
Neoteric’s one-of-a-kind hovercraft trailers are easier to load and unload than any others on the market and can be operated by just one person. So lightweight they require only a small towing vehicle, our trailers are suitable for speeds up to 90 mph and long distance travel – thousands of miles …
The single axle Hover On/Hover Off Trailer is the preferred trailer in situations where rapid deployment and reloading is paramount. Easily operated by one person, it has a runaway electric braking system and is 16 ft. (5486 mm.) long and 8 ft. 6 in. (2590 mm.) wide. The trailer construction features a marine plywood deck, painted with oil based primer and black oil based enamel. The hitch ball measures 2 in. with a 7 pin round plug and the trailer comes with a spare wheel.
The swing arm Winch On/Roll Off Trailer for the 4-passenger Neoteric Hovertrek™ Hovercraft weighs less than 200 lb. (91 kg.) and, with the hovercraft loaded, can be handled easily by one person. The hovercraft is rolled off and winched on, and swing arms make it impossible for the hovercraft and trailer to separate. It’s extremely easy to move around any garage or workshop and excellent for washing your hovercraft and conducting under hull inspections and skirt work.
The swing arm Winch On/Roll Off Trailer for the 6-passenger Neoteric Hovertrek™ Hovercraft weighs less than 220 lb. (100 kg.) and, with the hovercraft loaded, can be handled easily by one person. The hovercraft is rolled off and winched on, and swing arms make it impossible for the hovercraft and trailer to separate. It’s extremely easy to move around any garage or workshop. It’s excellent for washing your hovercraft and conducting under hull inspections and skirt work, but the trailer is front-heavy, so propping it up during this work is recommended.
