This is a fine example of a TS3 twin-engine cruising Hovercraft, built and maintained to a very high standard. The Hovercraft is stored under cover and is offered for sale with a trailer and a bespoke full-size cover for the Hovercraft. The thrust engine is a BMW R1100 90 BHP with fuel injection this provides power and drives a 6 bladed turbine. The lift engine is a 21bhp Briggs and Stratton driving a 9 bladed turbine. This engine can run at 3600rpm but is comfortable at 2800rpm on long cruises. Both engines benefit from professionally made stainless steel exhaust systems. The existing skirt system is in good condition, also some new spare segments included. The dashboard instruments include:
Amp Meters for each engine, RPM gauges for each engine, battery isolator, push button start and "kill switches" for each engine, oil temperature gauge for thrust engine, fuel gauge, switches for two floodlights fitted and one for the amber beacon, and a fire extinguisher in cockpit.
The Hovercraft has a marine VHF radio fitted which is connected via an intercom and two headsets for easy communication to passengers and to communicate with other vessels.
The Hovercraft is Marine Registered with a SSR number.
I will consider shipping the Hovercraft overseas but the cost would be borne by the buyer.
