Williams Jet Tenders announced the launch of the new Minijet range – a smaller, lighter weight and more accessible tender option that will allow owners of sub 45-foot power and sail boats to experience the world of Williams.
Powered by the BRP Rotax Ace 900 engine, the Minijet will weigh in at under 200kg, making it around 100kg lighter than the equivalent Turbojet model. The company said the Minijet’s 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 was first unveiled to the public at the 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 was built to offer functionality with its shallow draft and manoeuvrability, and the company said it’s simpler to use, with no outboard engine to fit or remove every time. Its design features will incorporate the Williams fit and finish.
The company says the Minijet is a 2.80m tender that comfortably travels at 35mph. The price competitive with the equivalent outboard tender, according to Williams.
“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,” Mathew Hornsby, sales director at Williams Performance Tenders, said. “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.”
