Even though the major boat shows featuring megayachts and products suited for them have passed, this doesn’t mean you won’t see related introductions at other boat shows. A case in point is the annual show in Germany in January, Boot Düsseldorf. Williams Jet Tenders is using the occasion to premiere a tender tailor-made for megayachts measuring 131 feet (40 meters) and larger, the Evojet 70.
The semi-custom tender, which measures about 23 feet (7 meters) LOA, is made for this particular market because it can carry a passenger total of 13. It also has the features owners, guests, and crew have come to expect of a watertoy. For example, thWie Evojet 70 has a handful of boarding options. These include a fold-out, walk-through transom, suitable for transfers to and from a swim platform or a dock. For easier nighttime boarding, the Evojet 70 has concealed LED deck lighting. On a related note, this lighting lends aesthetic appeal, too.
Williams Jet Tenders knows it’s on the right track with these, and more, features because it already gave some customers a sneak peek earlier this fall. As for those additional features, they include an integrated waterski pole, plus an optional carbon fiber T top, the latter seen in the photo above. Further optional, your crew can attach biminis to the T top both fore and aft, for even more shade. Better yet, the T top folds down, for stowage in tender garages. With the top in place, the Evojet 70 stands 5’8” (1.76 meters). With the top folded, meanwhile, the tender is a low-profile 4’1” (1.25 meters).
Whatever features you choose to add, the Evojet 70 promises the ride that other Williams Jet Tenders models have. It comes from a deep-V hull and the company’s own jet pump. Although the company does not specify performance figures, it does say the boat comes with Yanmar diesel engines. Finally, because it doesn’t have an exposed propeller, swimmers are safer in the water around the tender.
Boot Düsseldorf takes place January 18 to 26.
