This thesis presents the development of a small-scale hovercraft unit which providing full hovercraft basic functions and had been carried out by the author to fulfillment of the requirement for the award of the degree of bachelor of Mechanical Engineering. This designed hovercraft which has two stage of development and include two models. The first model is for PSM 1 and the second and fully functions model is for PSM 2. Basically, the hovercraft design and construction process is quite similar to the boat or aircraft design. In this report, I had made all the required analysis's and used some formulas for thrust and lift, drag components calculations and other important parameters to realization the development of these air cushion vehicle models. Also, the planned model 30 drawing of this hovercraft with their general arrangement was completed and attached together with this thesis. The aim of this report is to provide the literature study, all necessary methodology, constructions and analysis's as part of the requirement in submitted the report to the PSM supervisor and shall fulfill the project objectives and scopes. Even though hovercraft research and development is still new technology in Malaysia and no domestic consumption in this technology, through this development project, it shall help this industry a step further because this project can be categorized as successful and working as expected. Finally, I wish KUTKM will give the priority and budget to anyone who interest to continue to improve this project and conduct R&D for the development of this technology in the near future.
