Overview

The all new Griffon 995ED is a fully amphibious hovercraft capable of carrying a maximum payload of 995kg, or up to eight persons, at high speeds over a variety of surfaces.

The very large and accessible main compartment has outfit options for many different roles such as search & rescue, surveying, passenger ferry or military operations.

The latest innovation in manufacturing techniques ensures that the hovercraft is extremely light-weight whilst maintaining the trademark Griffon robustness.  The dimensions of the craft are such that it can be road trailored with the side bodies deflated.

The extremely light-weight and efficient hull is constructed from marine grade aluminium alloy and designed to comply with ISO 12215-5:2008. Either side of the hull are flat inflatable sidebodies to which the skirt is attached. This innovative system significantly improves the working area compared to hovercraft of a similar size whilst maintaining the ability for them to be deflated for transportation.

The 995ED is supplied as standard with a GRP wheelhouse over the operators' position giving weather protection to the front seat and controls. The cabin can be fitted out in a number of role options including additional seats, stretcher hold-downs and equipment tie-down points.

Unique to the 995ED are its 2 standard hybrid power modules containing a proven and world-wide supported 85kW Ford Tiger diesel engine driving a highly efficient integral lift fan and electric generator. If one power module is inactive, the craft can be operated (with reduced performance) on the other alone.
