Yachting - - CURRENTS - Take the next step: williamsjet­ten­

12'9" 40 KNOTS ince its found­ing in2004,Eng­land­based Wil­liams Jet Ten­ders has be­come seem­ingly om­nipresent in many high-end har­bors the world over. And that near ubiq­uity is for good rea­son. Take, for ex­am­ple, the Sport­jet 395, which de­buted at the Southamp­ton Boat Show in Septem­ber. The RIB’s fea­tures in­clude a 90 hp BRP Ro­tax ACE 903 en­gine placed amid­ships to max­i­mize seat­ing and cre­ate a bal­anced, dry ride — not to men­tion to shoot this lit­tle road­ster of a boat along at speeds up to 40 knots. The 395 is for the yacht owner who wants a fast, ma­neu­ver­able, eas­ily stow­able ten­der that can de­liver him and his guests

Sto the dock safely and dryly — though per­haps with some wild, wind-styled hair­dos. You’ve been snor­kel­ing all day on a co­ral reef us­ing your big boat’s swim plat­form as a base, and you’ve worked up quite an ap­petite. As the sun sinks, you can just make out your fa­vorite beach bar spring­ing to life in the mid­dle dis­tance. It’s time to fire up the Sport­jet 395 and go see about some conch chow­der, and maybe some­thing cold to drink.
