One of a kind 22' full enclosed Beachcraft. This hovercraft was designed and built by David Beachy, a great custom hovercraft builder well known for his stylish and high performance designs.
The Beachcraft was built in 2011,and has only 68 hours flying time. This is a very well designed and well maintained hovercraft in perfect running condition and turn key ready. This craft won the quality construction award with the Hoverclub of America in 2011. It is powered by an 85 hp 4 cylinder fuel injected Suzuki. It has a 3 to 1 reduction drive turning a 54" prop generating a massive 450 lbs. of thrust! This is enough thrust to get over "hump" and on plane with a full load with no hint of hesitation whatsoever! The lift engine is a 20 hp Kohler v-twin. The enclosed hull has side by side seating in the back and center seating in the front with storage under the front seats. The fuel tank and the fuel pump are positioned under the rear seat. The hull is built out of an incredibly strong honeycomb core material (Plascore) with no wood to ever rot below the waterline. There are two removable sunroofs above each of the seats for "open air" flying if desired. The sunroofs are positioned so that the pilot and a passenger can stand while operating the hovercraft. The steering is a jet ski type steering with push-pull cables. The hull has a foot print of 7' wide by 18' long with a total of 22' with the rudders and trim wing included. Skirt patterns as well as skirt material to make new future skirts, to be sent along with the craft. Hovercraft training is available if desired. Custom fit, tilting trailer is included with sale.
Although we at Slipstream are very familiar with this machine (we have another one here that is very similar!) this craft is still owned by the original builder, David Beachy. We are only selling it as a consignment.
other used hovercraft you'll see on craigslist or ebay, THIS ONE IS 100% READY TO FLY,
needs no work at all, and is extremely reliable.
