East Coast Parasail & Jet Ski is building the all new Jet Boat ” Get Some”

We’re launching East Coast Jet Boat in early May 2013 as an all-new South Jersey attraction with The “GET SOME” – the first Jet Boat of its size on the East Coast! We’ll be posting all the details about the build along the way, but first, let’s make a few things clear:

We haven’t just built a jet boat; We’ve built a jet boat with some of the most sophisticated engineering and highest quality components in the world. The “GET SOME”, custom made New Zealand style, is a 30-foot, 24-person plus 1 driver jet boat featuring lightweight all-aluminum construction, and two massive 300HP Steyer diesel engines. The highly sophisticated design, engineered for speed and agility, allows the “GET SOME” to travel at speeds in excess of 50 MPH and perform some very exciting maneuvers! However, the vessel will not travel in excess of 35 MPH due to U.S. Coast Guard regulations.

The most unique aspect of the “GET SOME” , however, is its jet propulsion system – consisting of dual Hamilton 241 Waterjets! The level of quality in our jet propulsion system is very uncommon outside of military applications. They are built to handle A LOT of power – up to 6,500hp to be exact – so rest assured, East Coast Jet Boats will offer the best Jet Boat experience around. However, there’s not really anything to compare it to for thousands of miles!

Believe it or not, all that power and speed doesn’t come at the cost of other important factors like safety. Here are a few facts about jet-propelled watercrafts:

1. Safety. Jet Boats have NO propellers or rudders – making swimmers, divers, and all Southern Jersey wildlife much safer. Not having propellers also means good things for local commercial fishermen, because there isn’t a propeller to get caught in the ropes attached to crab or lobster pots.
2. Comfort. Compared to propeller-driven boats, jet boats result in less noise and on-board vibrations. They provide a smooth, relatively quiet ride.
3. Maneuverability. Jet boats have excellent maneuverability, even at low speeds, because of something called “directed thrust”. When needed, force can be directed forward, backward, left or right, by controlling a component with the controls. This, in combination with the fact that there is no propeller, makes jet boats ideal for any narrow or shallow waterway.

Shes starting to look like a boat……
