Universal Hovercraft UH-10F2 Price: $4,800

Model: UH-10F2
Year built: 2010

I made several modifications to the plans:
Stretched 1 foot in length, upgraded to a 42" thrust fan, shroud covering the thrust engine and reduction drive, cockpit widened to 3 ft, steering uses a Teleflex push-pull cable.

The thrust engine is a 13 HP Greyhound generator engine (electric start) with belt reduction turning a 3 blade 42" Hascon fan. The lift engine is a 5.5 hp honda turning a 5 blade 24" Hascon fan. Both engines are currently running, and only have 11 hours of runtime. Top speed on water is 20-25 mph.

The custom 12 ft trailer with folding loading ramp is included. With the ramp and winch, this craft is very easily loaded and unloaded by a single person. This would make a great entry-level craft for someone wanting to get into the sport quickly. The hovercraft is currently located in Houston, Texas.

Universal Hovercraft UH-13PT Price: $7,500

Model: UH-13PT
Year built: 2005
Thrust engine: Briggs & Stratton 18 hp
Thrust propeller: 54 inch – 50 pitch wood propeller
Lift engine:  Briggs & Stratton 16.5 hp
Lift fan: 26 inch 5 blade
 
This is a nice hovercraft for the person that wants to get into hovering and doesn't have the time to build one.  It started its life as a UH-13P with a larger duct.  When I purchased this craft I converted it into a twin engine machine for independent control of lift and thrust.  You could turn it back into a belt drive lift system if you wanted but it would require the relocation of some components.  It is in good shape mechanically and the skirt is also in good shape.  A trailer is not included at this price but one can be available for an additional fee.  I am willing to drive 1 hour from 47802 to assist with delivering the craft if it helps out the buyer free of charge.  I will also include an extra new in box pre-shaped propeller and a free one year membership to the Hoverclub of America.

Universal Hovercraft UH-10F2 Price: $2,440.81 OBO

Model: UH-10F2
 
This is a Universal Hovercraft type UH-10F. It was built as a high school tech ed class project from 2003 to 2006.  Its size is 5' x 10' and is powered by a commercial grade 15.5 horsepower Briggs &  Stratton gas engine. It has maybe 1 hour total run time.  Everything was purchased brand new.  It needs a few finishing touches like the new throttle cable hooked up, a safety cage around the fans, and a tensioner for the fan belt. No trailer. I am selling it for the cost of materials we have in it; $2,440.81 or offer.

This is a spectacular looking craft Built by Gerry Glomski of Minnesota. Gerry’s precision craftsmanship is evident in the detailed finish of the craft. Last year Gerry fitted the craft with a 2007 4 stroke Yamaha (1K mile on engine) snowmobile engine. The new engine increased overall performance and lowered the crafts weight by 120 pounds.

The craft is controlled with a joystick turning 3 vertical rudders and one horizontal trim wing. The rudders are connected to the joystick with no maintenance push-pull cables. Gerry’s aircraft quality craftsmanship is displayed in the joystick with a custom CNC machined grip and finger throttle.

The hull is made from marine grade plywood and has 2” foam laminated inside to provide positive floatation.

The craft comes with the custom made tilt bed trailer. Unloading is a one man operation. Simply crank the jack at the front to tilt the trailer, deploy the 7’ slide ramp at the rear and hover the craft off. Craft can be loaded and unloaded on land or water.

The craft is currently in perfect operating condition. Gerry is selling the craft to make room to build another.
