A Royal Naming Ceremony for BHT-130

His Royal Highness Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh has named Hovertravel’s brand new BHT-130 hovercraft at a ceremony in the Hoverwork factory at St Helens Duver on the Isle of Wight on Wednesday 24th May.

The 70-tonne 130-seat hovercraft named “Solent Express” will be capable of speeds of up to 60 knots. It is the first hovercraft to be designed and built entirely by Hoverwork, a wholly owned subsidiary of Hovertravel Ltd. Previously the factory had built hovercraft designed by Westland Aerospace (now GKN).
