Hovercraft FAQ

Question: How much does a hovercraft cost and where can I buy one?

The cost of a hovercraft depends on the size and type of craft you are looking to purchase.

Small remote control hovercraft toys and educational hovercraft can be purchased for anywhere between $20 to $100. Take a look at the Remote Control (RC) page, and the hovecraft toys page.

Homebuilt hovercraft can be built for anything from $300 to $10,000 depending on the size of the craft. The biggest expense is typically the engines and the propellers and fans. You can keep the cost down by purchasing or using used engines and building your own propellers. We will cover propeller construction later.

A commercially built two person hovercraft will cost between $5000 and $10,000 dollars which usually includes the trailer. You can purchase used hovercrafts on Ebay, but be careful when buying a used hovercraft. You can read the hovecraft buyers guide which also has information on driving.
