Hovercraft : Cabin development (English)
Abstract [en]

The project in question is a joint effort between students at Karlstad University and Marcus Norström at the company Hovercraft solutions. The project is divided into two parts, one focusing on the purely technical aspects of engineering the product and one focusing on the design aspects of the product development. The project described in this report is the design of the product.


The assignment from Hovercraft solutions is regarding design engineering of a cabin for the hovercraft 380TD from the manufacturer Griffon hovercraft. The product lacks a cabin and none is offered from Griffon at the time being.


380TD is a relatively small hovercraft with a length of 6.8 metres and a width of 3.8 metres.

The surface available for the cabin is not much different from the body of a car.

Because of this, research has been focused primarily on car bodies.

The product development process used in the project is following a systematic approach.

From a chosen concept, the project was finalized with a CAD-modell as well as a detailed prototype.

The weight target of 80 kg was reached and the ergonomic aspects were considered developing the sight field, roof- and entrance height.
