Williams Jet Tenders, one of the world’s leading jet tender manufacturers, has announced that its new Minijet range will be available for public viewing in September at the 2016 Cannes Yachting Festival and Southampton International Boat Show.
Powered by BRP Rotax® Ace 900 engines, the Minijet weighs under 200kg, making it around 100kg lighter than the equivalent turbojet model. According to Williams, Its lighter weight and more compact dimensions will enable it to fit on a much wider range of vessels, as well as giving it a more accessible price point.
According to Mike Marine, a specialist in the sale and servicing of yacht tenders, “The Minijet offers excellent functionality with its shallow draft and manoeuvrability; and with no outboard engine to fit or remove every time, it’s simple to use.
“Its design features will incorporate the signature Williams’ quality fit and finish, delivering the trademark performance and handling expected from a Williams. There are not many 2.80m tenders that comfortably travel at 35mph. All of this at a price competitive with the equivalent outboard tender, make it an entirely new proposition available to a much wider range of boaters.”
Mathew Hornsby, Sales Director at Williams Performance Tenders also commented: “We are hugely excited about the launch of the Minijet, a much smaller and lighter model which gives access to a whole new segment of the market to experience what Williams has to offer.
“The Minijet is a truly unique package for the smaller boat owner, with no compromise on the factors that matter most, remaining true to our core quality, performance and design engineering excellence.”
