Williams Jet Tenders has announced that it will be re-launching two of its Turbojet models at this year’s Cannes Yachting Festival. The jet tender specialist, which prides itself on innovation and engineering, has re-developed the Turbojet 285 and Turbojet 325 ready for 2019. Since their inception in 2005, the two models 325 have remained popular with customers and, although much has evolved over the years, the changes have been subtle.
A large focus in the re-development has been centred around the engine. Continuing to develop its successful relationship with BRP, Williams will fit the new Turbojets with the compact, yet powerful BRP Rotax ACE 903 engine. Prioritising performance and reliability, the Turbojets will have the capability for watersports or cruising the coastline.
The re-design of the two new models has allowed Williams to modernise the extetrior design, with sharper and bolder lines throughout, better complementing the parent yachts that the Turbojet is commonly fitted too. A new slash cut tube profile enhances not only the aesthetics but also improves handling. Other details include reducing the total weight of the tender and modernising the design of the upholstery to move all guests on board the mothership in a comfortable, dry fashion.
“The Turbojets quickly became the industry benchmark for the best in jet-propelled tenders and it’s important that they retain their status,” comments Mathew Hornsby, sales director at Williams Jet Tenders. “Non-stop product development and innovative engineering are crucial to our business and we always take on board our customers feedback. These enhancements have only reinforced the Turbojet as being the ultimate tender for versatility and fun.”
As well as displaying the new re-models, Williams will also showcase its new Sportjet 435 for the first time, which launched in April. Measuring 4.35m in length, the Sportjet 435 delivers high-performance and speed, but in a bigger package. Designed to fit on yachts over 65ft, it can seat up to seven people, providing a sociable layout that positions the helm at the centre of the boat, leaving a flexible seating arrangement to carry more passengers.
