SOLAS is an internationally recognised safety standard in the construction, maintenance, and operating of seafaring vessels. So when you’re driving or being driven in – a SOLAS DieselJet 565, you can be confident in your safety and concentrate on enjoying the ride. All without compromising the signature Williams experience.

With unparalleled craftsmanship and expertise, we’ve designed the DieselJet 565 to mirror the splendour you’re used to on your yacht.

Which means its nine passengers can luxuriate in glorious comfort, whether you’re planing nimbly over the waves or slipping gracefully into harbour. Available with a 195hp engine, you will never be short of power.

01

Clear instrumentation

We’ve made the DieselJet’s instrumentation clear, simple and elegant - so you always know what’s going on above and below water.

A Raymarine 170 helm display, depth sounders and chart plotters make navigation easier than ever, so you can be supremely confident on the sea.

02

Always sitting comfortably

The DieselJet’s seating isn’t just comfortable...

It’s leg bolsters and abundance of handholds ensure you feel more secure, so even nervous passengers feel safe onboard.

03

Manoeuvrability in all conditions

The DieselJet’s unique hull, control system and pump deliver pinpoint accuracy at any speed.

Handle small spaces and delicate manoeuvres with confidence. Or open up the throttle and feel the thrill of straight-line speed and precision turns.

04

Easy boarding

Stepping aboard couldn’t be easier.

With multiple boarding points, gripped step pads, stainless steel boarding pole and optional LED deck lighting, stepping on and off your tender has never been easier.

05

Space, stability and control

The DieselJet offers maximum space for comfortable seating and practical storage.

Its centrally mounted engine and inflatable tubes sit lower in the water, so whether you’re taking hairpin turns or serenely boarding at the jetty, the DieselJet is always at your command.
