Vortex Services (Hovercraft) Ltd
We have been manufacturing the Vortex Predator and Raptor race craft for a number of years now, these craft have and continue to, win all the major championships in the UK, Europe and World Race series.
These craft have up till now only been available as complete products, however we now feel that the time has come to offer these craft in kit or partial kit form for the dedicated home builder. I must stress that these models are out and out high performance race craft and are not suitable as crusing / leisure craft, we already do have a good range of these type of craft.
The Raptor is a top line F50 or FS craft, the Pedator is a top line F1 craft, we are also now offering a new derivative the Rapidor. This new craft is a size reduced top deck of the Predator with the underneath planning surface of the Raptor, this creates and outstanding craft for F2 or F35, being that bit smaller than its Predator big brother and having the capability to have a lift engine which the Raptor does not.
We have been racing an F35 Rapidor this season and won 9 out of the 10 races at the first meeting, this is a very well behaved craft that will suit the novice and the experienced racer alike.
Photos of Rapidor coming soon.
We will be launching the new Vortex Sirocco at the beginning of October, this new craft is designed to be a very safe and simple to use and maintain, twin engine 2 seat craft. It will have a payload of 175kg making it suitable for 2 adults or 1 adult and 2 children. It will be powered by a 13hp 4 stroke engine for lift and a 30 - 35hp 4 stroke engine for thrust. In many ways it is a smaller version of our very successful Vortex Mistral craft......
