For the millionaire who has everything: A $190,000 hovercraft

April 30, 2012

How are you planning on spending your summer vacation this year? If you had a good year, you might be considering buying a fishing boat or maybe even a jet ski. But if you had a really, really good year, you might want to put one of these in the water: A $190,000 hovercraft that lets you explore the waterways — and the sky — of exotic vacation destinations in style.

If you're about to drop a couple hundred thousand dollars on a vehicle, you're probably going to want to pay careful attention to what's under the hood. In this case, The Flying Hovercraft has a 130-hp, twin-cylinder liquid-cooled engine that can push the craft to speeds over 70mph. True to its hovercraft nature, this vehicle is usable in both fresh and salt water, as well as on land over sand, grass, or snow. It also includes a pair of wings that help the craft take small flights to jump over obstacles as high as 20 feet.

This hovercraft may sound expensive, but it's a relative bargain considering that you could spend ten times as much on a Corvette-turned-speedboat or fifteen times as much on a $3 million RV. But hey, if you're in the market for any of these recreational vehicles, you probably have enough money to buy all three without blinking an eye. For the rest of us, though, there are some more affordable ways to have fun in the summer sun that won't require a second mortgage.
