Williams Jet Tenders, the world’s leading jet tender manufacturer, has upgraded its MiniJet 280 for 2018, with the already high-performance tender now equipped with a 50hp BRP Rotax® Ace 903 engine.


This upgrade promises increased acceleration and improved handling, even when fully loaded at passenger capacity. Existing MiniJet owners also won’t get left behind with an upgrade kit available, featuring a new BRP dash cluster and new set of sponsons for enhanced stability.  Contact your local dealer for more information about the upgrade kit.


Weighing under 200kg, the MiniJet 280’s light-weight and compact dimensions makes it ideal for owners of sub 45ft power and sail boats and through Williams’ increased relationship with sailboat builders, the MiniJet 280 now has confirmed fitments for the Bavaria C57 and C65, and Hanse 588.


Mathew Hornsby, Sales Director at Williams Jet Tenders, commented: “We’re delighted to announce the upgrade to our MiniJet engine. As one of our best selling models, it’s important that we continue to improve and innovate to offer our customers the very best tenders available. The upgrade, which takes it from a 45hp to 50hp, may not seem like very much to some, but it makes a big difference to how the boat accelerates, without comprising its existing superb handling ability.


“Since launching the MiniJet 280 back in 2016, we’ve created a whole new segment of the market, and our increased relationships with OEMs for fitments of the model is testament to its success. 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.”
