£2m has been awarded to Griffon Hoverwork to enable the research, design and build of two new passenger ferry hovercraft which have replaced the former vessels which had been serving the Isle of Wight for 25 years. The first of the new vessels - the Solent Flyer - was launched in the summer of 2016 and is now safeguarding a key connectivity route to the Isle of Wight, providing significant environmental improvements as well as creating 40 new and safeguarding over 400 jobs. The second vessel - the Island Flyer - is due to launch later this year.
