They are also different from hovercrafts or hydrofoils. In terms of how a Ground Effect Vehicle works, they are technically situated right between a hovercraft and a plane. Not touching the water means no water induced drag on the body of the vehicle.

In The Maritime Engineering Reference Book, Surface effect ships (SESs) The earliest form of SES was the hovercraft in which the craft was lifted completely clear of the water on an air cushion created by blowing air into a space under the craft and contained by a skirt.

For these craft propulsion is by airscrew of jet engines. These hydrofoils were much quieter than hovercraft, and provided a much smoother and vibration free ride as well. The Flying Princess had comparable reliability to the SR.N4 hovercraft ferry, around per cent.

One journalist noted that a drink placed on a seat-back table of a SR.N4 would quickly vibrate off even in calm seas, whereas at similar speeds in metre high waves a drink.

A hovercraft, also known as an air-cushion vehicle or ACV, is an amphibious craft capable of travelling over land, water, mud, ice, and other surfaces. Hovercraft use blowers to produce a large volume of air below the hull, or air cushion, that is slightly above atmospheric pressure.

The pressure difference between the higher pressure air below the hull and lower pressure ambient air above it.

At low speeds the hull (body of ship) sits in the water and the hydrofoils are totally submerged in the water. As the boat’s speed increases, the hydrofoils create lift.

At a certain speed, the lift produced by the hydrofoils equals the sum of of the boat and cargo. As nouns the difference between hydrofoil and hovercraft is that hydrofoil is (nautical) a wing attached to the hull of a ship that raises it out of the water when travelling at speed and thus reduces drag while hovercraft is a vehicle supported on a cushion of air, able to traverse many different types of terrain and travel over water, used for transport.

A hydrofoil is a lifting surface, or foil, that operates in are similar in appearance and purpose to aerofoils used by aeroplanes. Boats that use hydrofoil technology are also simply termed hydrofoils. As a hydrofoil craft gains speed, the hydrofoils lift the boat's hull out of the water, decreasing drag and allowing greater speeds.
