A shared pastime of building wooden boats led brothers Mathew and John Hornsby to found Williams Marine in 1995. The business was initially based in their mother’s garden shed – who also provided her maiden name, Williams, as the company name. Specialising in the production of handcrafted cold moulded wooden powerboats, they quickly established a reputation in the marine industry for producing craft of the highest standard.
Williams Performance Tenders is the world’s leading jet tender specialist. An extensive model range covering both petrol and diesel engines has been developed by our dedicated team of engineers, boats which are capable of functioning as safe and practical tenders or fast and fun waterski boats all in one package. All our boats are fitted with jet drives – we don’t build any other type of tender, and this unique focus has given Williams the edge when it comes to product design and engineering.
