NEW YORK, Aug. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Continuing its 165-year history of offering the Best, the Only and the Unexpected, Hammacher Schlemmer introduces The Golf Cart Hovercraft, a conveyance that glides over sand traps and water hazards as easily as it does over fairways and the rough.

Powered by a 65-hp twin-cylinder Hirth engine, its nine-blade axial-flow ducted fan propels The Golf Cart Hovercraft up to 45 mph and 9" off the ground without harming grass, allowing immediate crossing of a pond or stream to follow-up a cross-water shot.

"The Golf Cart Hovercraft speeds up an 18-hole outing while carrying four passengers beneath a lift-up roof and two golf bags in an open rear compartment," explained Hammacher Schlemmer's General Manager Fred Berns.

Made from a fiberglass composite and urethane foam composite hull, The Golf Cart Hovercraft meets United States Coast Guard standards for reliable hovering over water.

The Golf Cart Hovercraft is available from Hammacher Schlemmer for $58,000. For more information about these products, please visit The Golf Cart Hovercraft or contact Trish Hammond at (847) 581-8987 or via e-mail at pr@hammacher.com .
