Broker's Comments

British Hovercraft are the world’s largest manufacturer of recreational and light commercial hovercraft so you know your in good hands with the BHC Snapper!

Designed to carry two passengers at speeds of 30kph, this Hovercraft is ideal for light recreational use on grass, sand, mud and of course water!

We have personally tired and tested the craft and can verify it performs well on both land and water. We do however feel it would benifit from a new skirt as some of the pockets are split. Following some investigation we believe a full, new replacement skirt costs around £500.00.

The Hovercraft has been barn stored and with the exception of the skirt the overall condition is good.

If ever there was a toy to put a smile on the face of a grown adult, this is it! Built purely for the thrill of blasting across land and sea combined.
