Williams Jet Tenders has announced that it will be launching a new product range focused specifically on the superyacht sector. The first model in the new range, the Evojet 70, is set to launch in autumn 2019 and will be a tender capable of carrying 13 guests. A larger sister model will launch later in 2020.
Responding to requests from its customer base, who are progressing to increasingly larger yachts, Williams has recognised the demand for a range of all-purpose, semi-custom superyacht tenders and chase boats. With Williams’ current range catering for yachts up to 40 metres, this new jet tender represents a significant step forward for the brand.
The Evojet 70 will take the hallmark traits of the current Williams range and apply them to the superyacht sector with particular focus on refined and practical designs underpinned by reliable and proven engineering. The tender is designed with multiple boarding options to ensure an easy transition from the mothership or dock. It also features a foldout walk-through transom and a single-level floor for ease of movement once onboard.
One of the most unique and distinctive features on the new Evojet 70 is the optional folding carbon fibre T-Top, providing ample shade for the driver and passengers while also having the ability to fold flat for easy garage storage. As an option, the T-Top can also support fore and aft bimini canopies, providing shade over the whole boat.
Remaining committed to Williams’ jet propulsion system, the new tender will be powered by the latest Yanmar 4LV engine technology, a diesel engine producing more torque than its predecessor, offering unrivalled reliability and global service support. This will be coupled with Williams’ in-house designed jet pump and new single lever integrated thrust control system.
“The new Evojet range is a real game changer for the business and it’s the start of the next chapter in Williams’ history,” says Mathew Hornsby, sales director at Williams Jet Tenders. “Tenders placed onboard 40-metre-plus superyachts are often custom-built, and this ultimately means a higher cost and a longer lead time. Our proposition is unique; we can deliver a semi-customised product, in a shorter lead time than our competitors, leveraging our proven engineering to create a reliable, innovative superyacht tender at a very competitive price.”
