Vortex Services (Hovercraft) Ltd
2014 was a very busy year for Vortex Services, migrating from a sole trader company to a full Limited Company with increased investment.
Output in 2014was the highest since the companies founding in 2005, 5 top line performance racing craft (which have gone on to compete in the UK and European Race Series). A number of our well established Corporate Vortex Storm Hovercraft were produced and are in continuous use in the UK and aboard, giving hovercraft experience to novice pilots.
We also attracted a big order from a customer in the USA, who ordered 3 craft, single seat Storm, 4/5 seat new Mistral craft with a 120hp Supercharged Toyota engine and our flag ship Vortex 7+. This version was configured as a 9 seat version, using an 80hp de-rated Toyota engine for lift and a 120hp Supercharged engine for thrust.
