High Speed Hovercraft - GTH
The Io Design, High Speed Hovercraft is a streamlined hovercraft based on proven technology.
Its primary use is for comfortable, quite, long range cruising and brief overnight trips.
This is accomplished by well padded seats and the application of sound deadening material placed around the perimeter of the enclosed cockpit.
The streamlined , wide body shape of the craft allows for a narrow port and starboard bunk. Twin front seating is provided with additional space aft ( approximately 3' x 6') for seating or storage.
The craft is designed for durability and damage tolerance by the application of a monoqouc type structure made up of encapsulated balsa/fiberglass reinforced panels. The balsa core panels also help to attenuate sound and vibration.
Automotive quality safety glass is used for the windscreen which is provided with an electric wiper. Typical automobile fuel economy allows substantial range, this combined with the unique amphibious capabilities will allow unprecedented access to some of the most remote regions of the globe.
This is the primary reason the design emphasis has been on reliability, all systems will be marine quality and special care is taken at all electrical termination's and pipe/tubing fittings.
Formula 1, inspired carbon/foam cored monocoque body structure. Large, ventilated loop seal. Ground to roof height of less than four feet.
Lower hood with port and starboard steering vents and integrated cushioned bow section that is immune to stuffing.
Large NACA inspired thrust intakes. Refined rear thrust nozzle and a stealth like low noise level of only 72 dba. Gull wing doors lower for easy ingress/egress. Racing inspired interior décor. Built in fire suppression system.
