Keeping you afloat

Mr Hovercraft’s Service Package can include a tailor-made hovercraft maintenance plan, and a craft recovery and repair service so you can hover without any drag. The cost of this package will vary greatly depending on the location of the craft. So if you are stuck somewhere, far away – in the middle of that unexplored river, hundreds of km from a road, then recovery costs could be quite hefty. Comprehensive Marine insurance is available for your hovercraft and your – hefty exploration needs.
