Search & Rescue Christy Hovercraft hovercraft lineup
Christy Hovercraft team designed these models in close cooperation with representatives of interested search & rescue service and organizations from different countries. When developing models, the requirements for increased load, ease of operation and maintenance were taken into account, as a result of work we were able to maintain and increase the traditional advantages of Hovercraft Christy: versatility, high cross-country ability, maneuverability, economy and, of course, reliability!
Christy Hovercraft team has been developing, manufacturing and supplying hovercraft for more than 15 years. The accumulated experience, constant research, the use of the latest achievements in the field of materials science and aerodynamics allowed us to create a line of perfect amphibians for search and rescue and humanitarian operations in coastal, tidal, flood zones, on marshy, silty soils, on clean or covered with ice/snow water surface - at any hard-to-reach point.
Unique amphibiousness allows you to overcome obstacles up to 0.5 m (1.64 ft), transporting up to 1600 kg (3520 lb) of payload or special equipment at speeds up to 65 km/h (40 mph) in any weather, any time of the year. For Christie’s hovercraft search and rescue boats, any relatively flat surface is an excellent road suitable for quick specialist delivery! Christie hovercraft is easy to transport to the right place, does not require a pirs, has a comfortable heated cabin.
From an environmental point of view, Christy Hovercraft is safer than most vehicles. It does not violate the vegetative cover of the surface on which it moves, does not harm small animals and fish.
