Burden Brothers

Welcome to the home of the Burden Brothers Hovercraft.

The Burden Brothers Hovercraft is a single engine personal hovercraft that was built in approximately 2 weeks. The construction time was rushed in order to have it ready for the Stubbs BBQ show on May 10th of 2002.

It is based on the 10F design from Universal Hovercraft and it can travel over any relatively flat surface. It has a top speed of about 25 MPH and does not have any brakes.


The hovercraft was built to help promote the Burden Brothers. The idea came from seeing the Burden Brothers race car that was present during SXSW (South by Southwest) 2002. The car was all black with the large BB logo on the front. You can see a picture of it here. We figured we could build a hovercraft to match the race car. The band was approached and they thought it was a good idea and even provided the flame logo seen above.


You can hear more about the hovercraft on the Burden Brothers RYFLAMF DVD extras.
