Summary:

Providing amphibious solutions to the littoral for sustainability in hovercraft, marine and other innovative related technologies.

Description:

The global environment is changing at record pace with rising sea levels to increased extreme weather. These changes put an increasing number of lives at risk and hinder the ability to operate in coastal and tidal areas where the water can be cluttered with debris following environmental events. By hovering above the surface, hovercraft save time, lives and money by flying over the shallows, weeds, mud, reefs and obstacles that often restrict conventional vehicles.

We aim to enable our users to confidently and successfully operate in the most diverse and inaccessible areas of the world; from the jungles of South America to the frozen seas of the Baltic, Caspian, Antarctic and Arctic.  Direct, high speed manoeuvrability is achieved for the world’s best operators for lifesaving search and rescue, humanitarian, medical, passenger transport, commercial and defence roles.  

Since first conception by Sir Christopher Cockerell in 1955, Griffon Hoverwork Ltd has been at the forefront of hovercraft development. Throughout our history we have provided and support over 180 classed hovercraft around the world in over 41 countries.

Using our specialised mix of maritime and aeronautical engineering expertise we have evolved and innovated our designs in not only hovercraft but high-speed boats and also lightweight, flexible structures. We provide governments and organisations with the means to connect people with what is needed, where it is needed and when it is needed.
