Hovercrafts ride much smoother than a boat because they move over the water, not through it. It travels over water with no concern for depth or hidden obstacles. It will go against the current of a river with no speed reduction. The hovercraft also works well in rapids, or white water for recreation, and rescue operations have been performed.”

Universal Hovercraft has been in business for over 32 years and is located in McHenry, Illinois.
