Turbojet 385

The Turbojet 385 comfortably seats five adults and one child with space for storage. It's perfect for days out, exploring hidden coves or pulling up on a secluded beach for a private picnic. Head off down the coast, drop anchor and lower the bathing ladder for a gentle swim in glistening turquoise waters. Then blast back to your yacht with a top end of 48 mph (77 kph) with the standard engine or 53mph (85kph) if you opt for the ‘S’ version engine.

Cleaner, more powerful engine

Get improved power, torque and fuel efficiency with the next-generation Textron 850MPE engine. It performs better and is also cleaner, thanks to a catalytic converter, making it one of the cleanest marine engines in the world. Available in a choice of power outputs, there’s also a power reduction switch for jet tender newcomers who want to take it easy at first.

High Performance

Turbojets are known for outperforming almost all comparable craft on the water, whether it is pulling a waterskier, cruising along the coast or whipping in and out of tight corners. With top speeds of up to 53 mph/85 kph, jumping aboard a Turbojet and firing up the engine is a thrill you will never tire of.

Supreme Stability & Buoyancy

The Turbojet design places the helmsman at the stern of the craft in the most secure position for maximum control. By utilising a centrally mounted engine and an inflatable tube, which is positioned close to the water, the Turbojet is supremely stable whether static or running at speed. This makes for easy and comfortable passenger boarding and a safe, enjoyable ride at high speed. What’s more, due to the inherent hull buoyancy, the tender will float even without the inflatable tube.

More torque, less maintenance jet pumps

Our purpose-made jet pumps are not only more efficient, they are also incredibly safe, as there are no exposed moving parts. With stainless steel impeller and double-coated pumps, they provide excellent protection against corrosion, giving you long life with minimal maintenance.

Manoeuvrability in all conditions

Get pinpoint accuracy at both high and low speeds. The unique Turbojet hull, control system and jet pump make getting in and out of tight spots an easy task. Drive up to a yacht or handle confined spaces with utmost confidence. At the other end of the scale, you can open up the throttle for superior high-speed straightline tracking and precision controlled turns.

Clear Instrumentation

Have peace of mind with instrumentation to keep you informed of what’s going on above and below the water. As well as standard instruments, you can specify optional extras such as depth sounder, vhf radio and chartplotter. You can even opt to have a removable steering wheel to make storage easier and as an effective anti-theft device.

Sitting comfortably

The seating on a Turbojet is not only comfortable, it has been designed to keep you drier and more secure. With a commanding helm position from the stern, you can keep an eye on your passengers, and seat between three and seven adults.

Easily replaceable tubes

The inflatable tubes on all Williams tenders have been designed to be removed and replaced, quickly and easily. So you can get back on the water with minimal fuss.
