The Tek Hoversail is a deployable vehicle introduced in Genesis: Part 2 and also available on Genesis: Part 1, Lost Island and Fjordur. It can be used to travel great distances in style. It is able to host two survivors, one that controls the vehicle and one that can use weapons from the front.


Not sure if crew members used this for transport, recreation, or both.
Seems like you could get around the ring pretty quick on one of these.

~ Hoversail Record –  HLN-A


  • Only vehicle that can be picked up aside from the Canoe.
  • Like the Skiff, wild dinos are not agressive when you approach them while riding an Hoversail. This only works if the creature has not already aggroed on to the player and the effect does not persist if you anger the creature while on the hoversial.
  • You can remain on the hoversail while teleporting in the Genesis Simulation. This is a great asset on less powerful PCs and consoles because it creates a sort of spawn protection from creatures during long loads after teleporting.
  • The hoversail can be put on the hotbar for quick access in moments where you need to escape from danger.
  • If you deploy the hoversail while underwater it will quickly float you to the surface allowing you to escape undersea dangers quickly.
  • The hoversail can climb up steep mountains with great effectiveness.
  • You can safely hover over water and lava.
  • The hoversail can carry 1500 pounds.
  • The passenger, laying at the prow, can use a weapon.
  • The pilot can use a weapon, but at the first person view only.

  • Performing certain tricks on a Tek Hoversail increases its speed, while making you look awesome! Great for edating!
    • Performing tricks successfully on the Hoversail will also grant the rider points. What these points are used for is currently unknown.
  • The Hoversail self-destructs if left in the world unridden and not picked up after 1 hour. A countdown will display when you dismount.
  • Be careful when using the hoversail in hostile areas because it has low health and can be destroyed easily.
