Vortex Chosen to Provide New Rescue Hovercraft

Having recently been awarded a UK government grant for an inshore rescue hovercraft, we’ve been busy working with a number of hovercraft companies around the UK to find a supplier.

We’ve been through an in-depth selection process to find the company best placed to meet our very specific needs and we’re delighted to announce that Vortex Services have been chosen to provide our new craft,

We’ll be purchasing a twin-engined  version of their Mistral hovercraft, modified to suite our search and rescue function.

A basic Mistral hovercraft, similar to the model that will be supplied for our needs.

We were massively impressed with Vortex’s performance, capability and expertise and we’re really looking forward to taking deliver of the hovercraft – which is being purpose built for our specifications and is scheduled to be ready towards the end of May.

We’d like to thank all the suppliers involved in the selection process for their time and professionalism in working with us.
