Williams Jet Tenders has revealed it will be re-launching two of its iconic Turbojet models at this year’s Cannes Yachting Festival and for the first time at the show.
Williams will also be showcasing its brand new high-performance Sportjet model - Sportjet 435. The leading jet tender specialist, who pride themselves on innovation and engineering, has re-developed the Turbojet 285 and Turbojet 325 ready for 2019. Since their inception in 2005, the Turbojet 285 and Turbojet 325 have remained extremely 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. Delivering blistering performance and world-renowned reliability, the Turbojets will have the capability for watersports or blasting along the coastline to discover secluded sandy coves. The redesign of the two new models has allowed Williams to modernise the design, with sharper and bolder lines throughout, better complementing the parent yachts 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 onboard the parent yacht in a comfortable, dry fashion.
Commenting on the re-launch, Mathew Hornsby, Sales Director at Williams Jet Tenders, said: “The Turbojets quickly became the industry benchmark for the best in jet-propelled tenders and it’s important that they retain their status. “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.
“The new Turbojet 285 and Turbojet 325 offer expert sea-keeping ability and manoeuvrability, allowing owners to explore remote coastlines, as well as providing endless hours of watersports fun for the whole family. Above all, they embody our core purpose to provide effortless passenger transport and we hope our global audience enjoy our latest offering.”
As well as displaying the new remodels, Williams will also showcase the world premiere of its new Sportjet 435, which launched in April. Measuring in at 4.35 meters, the Sportjet 435 delivers high-performance and speed, but in a bigger package. Designed to fit on yachts of 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.
