Catalogs and Plans

We took a look at several Hovercraft plans and have to admit that on some of them it is useful to buy them 2 month before you want to start building your craft. It will take quite some time to figure out which part is in reference to the next. Since there is from free plans (for private use ) to plans for xxx $ everything on the market chose according to your technical knowledge - perhaps sometimes it pay's off to invest a little bit more in the first place to get you easier started and your project on the way than to save a few penny's and get continuously stuck. For everyone who want's to design his craft after his ideas - take a closer look and get in contact with the designer perhaps you can adjust a certain model to your needs. But now lets get to the facts :
Welcome to Plans and Catalogs

Here you will find the sources of Hovercraft plans. 
There are several designer selling plans for Hovercraft as well as finally again  Hovercraft kits . 
Before you start selecting a certain set of Hovercraft plans ask yourself where you want to use the Hovercraft, how much people you want to take on the ride as well as the total payload it should carry. From fishing gear to ice box - each pound counts since it will not help you to build a craft which was not designed for your application. 
Talk to other builder from all Hovercraft designs you are interested in to get an idea how "easy" it is to build your first craft. 

We hope the provided Links will help you select your dream craft.
