U.K.-based Williams Jet Tenders has completed a redesign of two models in its popular DieselJet series, the company announced.
The company’s 14-foot, 9-inch DieselJet 445 and 16-foot, 5-inch DieselJet 505 have undergone updates. Both have new helm layouts with standard Raymarine Axiom 7 display, updated storage, a contoured upholstery design and an integrated boarding pole in the helm’s backrest for safer boarding.
In addition, both will have a larger bathing platform, with a stainless-steel grab handle in the transom for easier egress to and from the water via the retractable ladder.
The RIBs are powered by 110-hp, Yanmar 4JH4 diesels mated to jet drives, which propel them to a reported top speed of 40 mph.
The models are set to premiere at the Cannes Yachting Festival, scheduled for Sept. 7-12.
Last month, Williams launched its 10,000th tender. Earlier in the year, the manufacturer said it was investing $1.36 million in its 80,000-square-foot Oxfordshire plant to accommodate new, larger molds.
