You should visit Universal Hovercraft. See what motors are spec'd for their hovercraft kits and calculate your needs based on that.

Assuming you're making a small single-seater, it'll probably be in the 5-10 HP range for gas, and 2-4HP for electric.

you'll need a motor that can lift the described weight plus that of the structure, mechanisms and ancillary devices, motor, and fuel.
