Williams Diesel Jet

Staff WriterNews Desk

Oxford-based Williams Jet Tenders says its new Dieseljet 415 will make its world debut in January 2021.

The company says that the market has been demanding a smaller Dieseljet since the launch of the brand’s very first model. It’s worked hard to scale its Dieseljet platform to a tender in the region of 4m. This, it says, opens up options for 75ft yacht owners for the very first time.

The Dieseljet 415 is powered by a 110HP Yanmar 4JH diesel engine and utilises Williams’ jet pump, reaching speeds of 40mph. The tender is 4.12m in length, can carry six guests, and features a 90-litre fuel tank as standard.

Key features are said to include a modern dashboard layout with centralised Raymarine Axiom 7” multifunction navigation system, and port and starboard dash storage. Owners can enjoy a port side boarding solution which features a step pad on top of the tube as standard in conjunction with the boarding pole for ease getting on and off. The boarding pole is then stowed in its own recess underneath the front cushion to avoid utilising locker space.

The Dieseljet 415 is also available in a low-profile option with folding helm station, removable steering wheel and overall height reduction to just 1m.

“Generally, a lot of customers prefer carrying single fuel onboard and we’ve seen an increasing trend towards explorer and semi-displacement parent yachts in the 75ft category that can carry the additional weight a diesel tender brings,” says Matt Hornsby, sales director. “This market is looking for a robust, ‘do it all’ tender that can be relied on and that’s something we can really deliver on across the globe with our proven workhorse engines and global sales and servicing support.”
