Hovercraft and operator hire

For many years, we have provided a Hovercraft and/or operator hire for all sorts of activities. Because hovercraft are so unique, a hovercraft is a perfect tool for visual entertainment, and to access to areas only a hovercraft can go.

Over my years in the hovercraft industry, I have not only supplied hovercraft for industrial usage, but I have supplied hovercraft for film, television, stunt shows and corporate functions.

Some of our visual entertainment jobs have included Kids shows. Television shows, such as Water Rats and Who dares Wins. We have also supplied hovercraft for corporate functions, major football matches and live shows. We have worked in almost every arena environment around Sydney including the S.C.G., Telstra Stadium and Sydney International Aquatic Center.

Some of our visual entertainment work is detailed below.



Sydney Swans Pre Match

Football Pre Match Entertainment

Football pre match entertainment is just one of many live functions' that hovercraft are suited for. We have supplied hovercraft for many AFL and NRL matches, including major grand finals. Pictured here with "Ziggy", the Sydney Swans mascot. I have also been "Ziggy" whilst operating a Hovercraft.



Clarkson Hammond and May Live

Clarkson Hammond and May Live. All Phones Arena. Sydney

Recently, we supplied a Hovercraft to the Clarkson, Hammond and May live show at the All Phone Arena in Sydney. Jeremy Clarkson is a fan of hovercraft. Jeremy used our hovercraft to open the Sydney show, and has used hovercraft In previous CHM live shows. It was a privilege to have our Viper hovercraft represent Australia in this way.



Stuntmania Wonderland Sydney

War on Water and Stuntmania Stunt Shows. 1999 - 2002. Wonderland Sydney

Back when I had time, which is not always the case these days, I supplied a small hovercraft for a stunt show at Sydney's Wonderland, three years running. This was an opportunity to work with the best stunt people in the game. This was not one of my designs, but I did build all three hovercraft used.

The little lake at Wonderland is not very big at all, and with three Jet Skis also in the mix, maneuvering a hovercraft in this tight space was challenging, and challenging to do exactly the same, show after show. I completed a 180 shows in total at this venue.



If you have a activity that you feel may be suited to a hovercraft, contact us. If we are not able to provide one of our own hovercraft, we can help you find someone who can.
