There are many hovercraft that come up for sale, but not all are suitable for cruising use, and there seems to be little information out there to help the potential new buyer select a machine suited to his/her needs. I hope this will help, but would encourage all potential buyers to make contact with the  Hoverclub UK(www.hoverclub.org.uk (http://www.hoverclub.org.uk) ) for further advice and guidance. But first, here are some pointers you might find useful:
