Hovercraft are a relatively new and unique form of transport, capable of traversing terrains which hitherto have been almost impassable at speed by surface transport. This high-speed capability was gained partially at the cost of ride comfort, but unlike some vehicle developments, as power and speed have increased, the noise and vibration within the hovercraft have steadily decreased with each new craft. The sources of noise and vibration are discussed, together with their possible methods of reduction in order to improve crew and passenger comfort.
