Williams Jet Tenders, the world’s leading jet tender manufacturer, is delighted to announce an exciting fresh development for the company with the launch of the new Minijet range – a smaller, lighter weight and more accessible tender option that will allow owners of sub 45ft power and sail boats to experience the world of Williams.
Powered by the industry-leading BRP Rotax® Ace 900 engines, the Minijet will weigh in at under 200kg, making it around 100kg lighter than the equivalent Turbojet model. Its lighter weight and more compact dimensions will enable it to fit on a much wider range of boats, as well as giving it a more accessible price point, all without compromising on the exceptional performance and quality on which Williams has built its reputation.
The Minijet concept will be unveiled for the first time at London Boat Show in January 2016, with the first boats available for public viewing in September at the 2016 Cannes Yachting Festival and Southampton International Boat Show.
The Minijet will offer unrivalled functionality with its shallow draft and manoeuvrability, and with no outboard engine to fit or remove every time, it’s simpler 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, makes it an entirely new proposition available to a much wider range of boaters.
Mathew Hornsby, Sales Director at Williams Performance Tenders, commented: “We are hugely excited about the launch of the Minijet, a much smaller and lighter model which gives access for 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.”
