The EPS M10 Hovercraft, built at the company’s facilities in Titusville, Fla., was launched in late 2010 and was shipped to its final destination in early January 2011. The successful engineering, manufacturing and launching of this fully composite vessel is a historic event as it is the first of its kind to be built in America and launched in its waters.

The EPS M10 is constructed of non-corrosive, fiber-reinforced advanced composites which are environmentally friendly and provide significant reduction in operating, maintenance, and through-life costs. The EPS M10 Hovercraft is a fully amphibious, air-cushioned vessel that can operate effectively at sea, in shallow waters and over any land surface. It is powered by two 1,000 horsepower diesel engines which provide it with lift and the operation of its propellers, giving speeds in excess of 40 knots. The EPS M10 measures sixty eight feet in length by thirty feet of beam and has an all up weight in the region of thirty-five tons. EPS builds these crafts under a license from ABS Hovercraft Ltd.
