Williams Jet Tenders has launched its first Dieseljet 565 and 625 models with Solas approval.

Williams Jet Tenders, a leading jet tender manufacturer, has launched the first of its DieselJet 565 and 625 models with SOLAS (International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea) approval, marking a significant milestone for the brand. These models join the DieselJet 505 in becoming fully certified as SOLAS rescue tenders.

Williams Jet Tenders’ commitment to exceptional engineering and flexible design has allowed the customisation of its tenders to meet the stringent requirements for SOLAS approval. This means owners can now opt for a rescue tender that not only boasts a stunning appearance but also possesses all the capabilities necessary for SOLAS rescue boats.

The SOLAS approval further expands opportunities for yachts seeking a versatile luxury tender suitable for guest transportation, fast-paced water sports, and day-to-day operations. Powered by high-performance Yanmar engines, the Williams DieselJet range is already popular with superyacht owners and this approval allows owners with vessels over 500 GT to choose a Williams tender capable of fulfilling multiple roles, including rescue, transportation, and daily operations.

Adhering to SOLAS regulations involves rigorous testing and quality control measures throughout the tender’s construction. The tests include a 3m drop test, self-righting, as well as an endurance trial to ensure compliance with safety standards.
