The Discovery is a rugged, high performance 7 seat
hovercraft powered by a 200hp gasoline engine. A multi-bladed
ducted propeller and large centrifugal lift fan both contribute
to efficiency and quietness.
The GRP hull is manufactured according to standard marine
composite techniques using high quality glass, foams and
resins. Buoyancy is provided by compartments within the hull
and the 400mm diameter permanently inflated peripheral tube.
The cabin features a large wrap-around windscreen giving superb
visibility to the centrally positioned driver and the option of
removable gull-wing doors allows an open or closed cabin. Two
rows of bench seats or a large clear cargo area are located
behind the driver.
The skirt is of the full flow bag/finger design. Attached to
the inflated tube the skirt gives excellent stability and high
ground clearance. Fingers are manufactured from Neoprene Rubber
to give the best abrasion resistance.
The steering wheel operates slipstream mounted rudders to
control heading. The instrument panel contains full
instrumentation indicating engine and craft performance
parameters. Cabin air conditioning and heating are an optional
extra for passenger comfort.
