WHY BUY A JETBOAT?
- 10 PASSENGERS MAX
- 14 - 25 FT LONG
Jet boats, in today’s boating world, are no longer considered the oversized personal watercraft (PWC) or an undersized bowrider. They’re full-size family runabouts with the same bounty of features and amenities found in today’s sterndrives. While there aren’t as many options for jet boats as there once was, what is available today is first rate.
Jet drives have advantages over sterndrive boats, and they’re certainly worth considering when pondering a new boat purchase. For example, jet drives are built into the hull, so a jet boat can run in shallower waters. There’s nothing extending beneath the running surface of the hull to catch seaweed or be damaged by rocks or other underwater obstructions.
Also, because the impeller is contained within the jet cavity, there’s no propeller to pose a danger when swimming around the transom of the boat. Pull up to the sandbar and enjoy splashing around with your kids, with nothing to be concerned about other than a sunburn and whether you brought enough sandwiches.
