Why “Jet Boat” when we have outboards? Our original Jet Boat did indeed have a Hamilton Water Jet coupled to a large turbocharged 455hp diesel. She became unavailable for charter in November 2007 and we needed a suitable vessel for our summer seasons bookings so an off the shelf production boat seemed the only solution. The Ballistic 7.8 is in use by the SA Water police and various charter operators on cape town, Dubai and the UK. This model has been tried and tested and used by experienced powerboat racers and took home three of the top 5 places in the 2003/2004 Trans Agulhas 1000km event. The choice was easy, and we have not looked back, so the Boat was changed but the name and reputation remained the same.
