Hov Pods fly on a cushion of air; so glide across sea, lakes, rivers,
grassland, marsh, sand, snow and ice! No need to bother about tide
times or slipways - turn the key and go! And if thereís no water
around, no worries, you don't need water to have fun.
Why Hov Pod is different

easy, we have popularized hovercraft technology for leisure use. Until
now, most small hovercraft has been limited to self-build kits and
racing craft; our approach is different, we focus on ease of use,
reliability, durability and safety. You donít need to be a pilot to
drive one, the Hov Pod design is so easy that after 10 minutes you
will have mastered the basics.

Hov Pod is an incredibly versatile, highly exciting and thrillingly
The Hov Pod is manufactured in Southampton, England, by Reaction
International Ltd. Company founder and Managing Director Peter Ward,
established the company in the year 2000.
As a marine engineer Peter travelled to many exotic destinations and
pondered on the question, "Why has no one exploited hovercraft
technology for the marine leisure industry?" After a number of years
market research, he concluded that although there were many kit built
and racing craft available, no one had designed a craft to meet the
exacting standards demanded by the marine leisure market.
Marine leisure buyers demand safety, ease of use, durability,
reliability, and expect a dealer network capable of providing on-going
sales and technical support.
The personal watercraft market is huge by comparison to hovercraft.
Peter set out to design a craft capable of addressing all of the known
problems associated with hovercraft, for example, the perception that
all hovercraft are noisy, difficult to control, are known to stop
suddenly on water, (known as ploughing in), and when they do stop on
water, occasionally sink!
Not only would his design need to overcome these problems to meet
safety standards, he also wanted the craft to look as good as personal
watercraft. To reach this aim, he contracted out manufacture of
specialist GRP (Glass Fibre) construction to specialist top quality
boat manufacturers. By September 2002, the first craft were ready for
launch at the Southampton International Boat Show, and took the world
by storm. Television companies lined up to conduct interviews and test
drive the Hov Pod, and queues formed as hundreds of people wished to
experience the Hov Pod ride. Leading magazines and National newspapers
began to feature the Hov Pod. Film companies featured the Hov Pod in
science fiction and adventure movies, TV footage was syndicated around
Reaction International Ltd are now busy building an international
network of dealers to provide sales and technical support, and have
received orders from as far away as Australia, South Africa and the
Middle East. The Hov Pod is testimony to the fact that if you can
invent or develop a new product that fits a niche market, the world
will beat a path to your door, evident by the growing demand of export
orders received by the company.
