Jet boat technology

You are here: Our Jet Boats » Jet boat technology

Custom built in the Queenstown workshops of our parent company Shotover Jet, they are constructed of heavy gauge marine aluminium, the hulls are designed for strength, and manoeuvrability. The boats have unique tiered seating and carry 14 passengers with an uninterrupted view.

Our boats incorporate the very latest technology with improved safety features and black-box technology for improved maintenance and engine efficiency. They also have superior visibility thanks to tiered, ergonomically moulded seats which feature heated and hinged hand rails for enhanced comfort and safety.

Equipped with the added safety of either twin supercharged V6 Buicks or twin 350 Mercruiser V8s. These have up to a combined total of 700hp, with twin Hamilton 212 Jet units thrusting 800 litres of water per second. The boats fully laden get their 14 passengers on the plane in around two seconds.
