HamiltonJet marks production milestone

Waterjet manufacturer HamiltonJet reached a significant production milestone with the recent completion of its 10,000th HJ212 waterjet model.

“The first HJ212 was built in February 1995 and was later fitted into a New Zealand-built sprint racing boat sponsored by HamiltonJet and Shell. Serial number 10,000 HJ212 is being installed into an all-new, 23-foot Jetcraft 2375 V-8-powered jet boat. The majority of HJ212s in between have been sold into the Pacific Northwest of the U.S. and Canada, with many others going to jet boats built in New Zealand and Australia,” HamiltonJet publicity officer Tony Kean said in a statement.

“HJ212 waterjets have also been installed into boats operating in the U.K., Africa, Nepal, Bhutan, Russia, Turkey, Mexico, Chile, China and many other countries where river conditions require the shallow draft, safety and maneuverability only waterjet propulsion can provide,” he added.
