Hovercraft as a SuperYacht tender
As a SuperYacht tender, a hovercraft can reach shore, even when the tide is out, as they can travel over any flat surface be that sand, mud, tarmac, concrete slipway, ice and snow.

Hovercraft have no propellers to get snagged on under water obstructions such as rocks or coral, and will not damage manatees or sea turtles.
Hovercraft are far more comfortable than RIBs and PWC - you float on an air bubble at speeds of up to 40 miles per hour, air suspension fitted as standard.
Here are a few things to consider before you buy a hovercraft.
Never ask how many seats, check on-water start payload, since all hovercraft need to overcome the pressure wave they create known in hovercraft circles as Hump.
Check whether the engine has been modified since modification will invalidate engine suppliers warranty - cheaper hovercraft are fitted with modified lawn mower engines and do not carry warranty.
Some hovercraft are very thin bodied, the Hov Pod is manufactured from HDPE and Carbon Fibre so far stronger than glass fibre.
Check safety features, such as whether a rear guard is fitted to the fan assembly - some suppliers leave this off to improve air flow so they can fit cheaper under powered engines.
