For auction: Four-person Hovercraft made by HoverGaurd with drive-on trailer
The fire department purchased this unit along with 4 others for water rescues on the rivers in the area.
The unit was in working order when we put it up for surplus.
The reason we stopped using the units was due to personnel not keeping up with the training required to operate them (county policies).
This unit was used late last year for a recovery in the river with no problems then sent to surplus.
The trailer is drive up designed just for the Hovercraft. The original cost to the county for this unit was $25,000.
The hovercraft has a Rotax engine the same type of engine used in Cessna planes.
Low hours on the engine and was serviced regularly while in-service.
All skirting is in place with no major tears as far as I remember.
The county purchased several of these units for swift water rescue but have slowly been phasing them out due to lack of use by the members in the departments.
