The ultimate millionaire’s toy is a $190,000 flying hovercraft, which is able to glide over land and water and soar through the air.
Available through U.S luxury goods firm Hammacher Schlemmer, the bright yellow amphibious and airborne vehicle features a 130 horsepower twin-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine and can hit speeds of up to 70 mph.
The craft can take to the air in short bursts and reach heights of fifty-feet above the water, ice or land.
This ability makes the flying hovercraft unique, enabling the pilot to simply hop over insurmountable obstacles that would stump a normal craft.
Turbocharged and fuel-injected, the craft’s integrated wings are propelled by a 60 inch wood/carbon composite turbine and a 1,100-rpm fan inflates the nylon skirt around the craft used for hovering.
The durable vehicle is able to operate on sand, mud, grass, swamp, desert, ice and snow.
Capable of traveling 160 miles on one tank, the flying hovercraft is perfect for the customer who is unsure whether they want to travel by the water or air to their destination.
Steady in winds of up to 25 miles per hour, the hovercraft can also take to the water in waves of up to six feet.
Able to accommodate up to three passengers with a combined weight of no more than 600 pounds, the flying hovercraft even comes with a PVC roof to make sure that no one gets sprayed.
Controlled via a main joystick, the pilot simply pushes, twists and pulls to accelerate, turn and brake.
Even though the craft can fly, according to Hammacher Schlemmer it must be registered as a boat.
