Hover Au Revoir - Final flights of SRN4 Hovercraft (40-mins)


Hover Au Revoir - Final flights of SRN4 Hovercraft (40-mins)

Ref: TFFLT001D


Hoverspeed, formed in 1981 by the merger of Seaspeed and Hoverlloyd, was a ferry company that operated on the English Channel from 1981 until 2005. The last owners were Sea Containers Ltd; the company ran a small fleet of two high-speed SeaCat Catamaran ferries in its final year. Hoverspeed is notable for its part in developing the hovercraft, and ran six SRN4 Mountbatten class hovercraft and one SEDAM N500 Naviplane. Hoverspeed last operated hovercraft on its Dover to Calais service. They were withdrawn on 1 October 2000 and replaced by Seacat catamarans.

This journey is aboard the last ever hovercraft flights of Princess Anne and Princess Margaret from Dover to Calais in the autumn of 2000.

One of these is preserved in the Museum at Lee-on-Solent and can be seen through the gates from the main espanade road (you can't miss it!).
