HamiltonJet Celebrates Milestone Together with Harbercraft Boats

World leading waterjet manufacturer HamiltonJet has reached a significant production milestone with the recent completion of its 10,000th HJ212 waterjet model.  This achievement cements the HJ212 as the world’s most popular individual waterjet model, and highlights the on-going popularity of shallow river boating both recreationally and commercially.

“The first HJ212 was built in February 1995, and was later fitted into a NZ-built sprint racing boat sponsored by HamiltonJet and Shell.  Serial number 10,000 HJ212 is being installed into an all new 23 foot Harbercraft 2375 V8 powered jet boat. 

The majority of HJ212s in between have been sold into the Pacific NW of the US and Canada, with many others going to jet boats built in New Zealand and Australia.  HJ212 waterjets have also been installed into boats operating in the UK, Africa, Nepal, Bhutan, Russia, Turkey, Mexico, Chile, China and many other countries where river conditions require the shallow draft, safety and maneuverability only waterjet propulsion can provide,” shares Tony Kean, Publicity Officer at HamiltonJet in Christchurch, NZ.

“We’re honoured that HamiltonJet selected Harbercraft Boats to celebrate their 10,000 unit milestone. The HJ212 is a perfect propulsion match for our exciting new Harbercraft 23 foot fast water model. We are building 10 HJ-10K Special Edition models to commemorate this event. Each will feature the embroidered HJ-10K seat logo, certificate of authenticity, aluminum Harbercraft dash plate and HamiltonJet HJ-10K side graphic,” explains Byron Bolton, Harbercraft CEO.
