Williams Jet Tenders’ Dieseljets to become fully certified SOLAS rescue tenders

Offered By Mike Marine Tender Specialist - Williams France Sales & Service Centre

Williams Jet Tenders is set to offer the Dieseljet 505 and 565 as fully certified SOLAS (International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea) rescue tenders from October this year.

As the world’s leading jet tender specialist, Williams Jet Tenders has been able to tailor its tenders to suit the most stringent requirements to become a SOLAS tender. This includes being capable of marshalling and towing life rafts, and acting as a man-over-board recovery boat.

The Dieseljet 505 and 565 open up more opportunities for yacht owners looking for a luxury tender, and are perfect for guest transportation and fast-paced water sports. The tenders can also be customised to match the look and name of the mothership, allowing owners to be able to opt for a rescue tender that not only looks superb on the water, but also has all the capabilities required of SOLAS rescue boats.

Mathew Hornsby, sales director at Williams Jet Tenders, said, “The role and appearance of SOLAS tenders has changed dramatically over the years and we have had many discussions with captains and crew about obtaining SOLAS approval. We are absolutely delighted to be working towards meeting these guidelines with our Dieseljets and are hoping to expand this across further models too.” 

Powered by high performance Yanmar engines, the Williams Dieseljet range is already demanded by many superyacht owners across the globe. This approval allows owners over 500GT to be able to opt for a Williams tender that can aid rescue missions, transportation, and day-to-day operations, while also helping to limit the number of tenders required on board.
