Hovercraft Project in Visakhapatnam

The hovercraft project in Visakhapatnam is a result of a deal struck during the CII Partnership Summit in 2016. The company had procured 4 machines from Russia to give the citizens some enthralling rides over the city’s waters. The tickets would be priced between Rs 300 and Rs 350, it has been learned earlier.

Popular in the countries of Australia, New Zealand, England, and Russia among others, this activity in Vizag will be the first of its kind in India.
