Hovercraft builder Griffon Hoverwork wins new orders for 995ED model

UK-based Griffon Hoverwork has won two new orders for its latest hovercraft model, the 995ED.

The 995ED was launched at the Exponaval maritime exhibition in Chile in December 2018 following delivery of the first production craft to the Malaysian government’s marine department which is being used for the maintenance of navigation marks and light houses. Now Griffon’s production line is busy building another 995ED for a private client for use in icy conditions. In addition, a tailor-made variant of the 995ED has been ordered as a tender for a superyacht and is now in production. The company is seeing increased interest worldwide for the 995ED, and larger hovercraft models, as countries look to prepare for the increased threat of flooding caused by global warming and rising sea levels.
