The new Williams Sportjet 435, a 14-foot, jet-powered RIB that can carry up to seven passengers and tops out at 52 mph, will be introduced at the London boat show, from January 10-14. It is the sixth model in Williams’ Sportjet series. “The 435 was created to extend our existing range of smaller Sportjet models, offering more space with seating for up to seven passengers, without compromising style or speed,” says Mathew Hornsby, the sales director for Williams Jet Tenders.
The 435 is designed for wakeboarding and waterskiing as well as a tender or sportboat to carry passengers and guests. The company says it is appropriate as a tender for boats 65 feet and more, and can be customized to complement its parent yacht.
Offering Williams’ characteristic rapid acceleration, easy handling and stability, the 435 comes in two engine packages. With a 90-hp Rotax Ace 903 engine, it tops out at 41 mph. With a more powerful 150-hp Rotax Ace 1503 engine, it hits 52 mph.
