The UH-14P Super Sportsman is one of the best performing 3 to 4 person hovercraft we have to offer. Its foam and plywood composite hull is easy to build and is unsinkable. A single vertical shaft lawnmower engine powers both the thrust prop and the lift fan and enables the craft to achieve a top speed of 57 mph quietly and efficiently. The 26" lift fan and 54" thrust prop are driven by a single 18 to 27 hp engine via a simple belt drive system.

In addition to being extremely quiet, the single engine design makes operating the craft easy. Just squeeze the throttle and off you go. We have engineered the drive system to supply the correct amount of power to both the lift fan and thrust propeller at every throttle setting. Kits are available with the engine, drive components, materials and technical support for $2,949.

The 14P meets the World Hovercraft Federation and Hoverclub of America Formula 25 racing requirements. See Hoverclub of America for more information.
