SJX Jet Boats are tunnel hull jet boats capable of extreme low water operations utilising speed, ultra manoeuvrability and survivability. The SJX will go where few other boats can go and are utilised for a variety of applications including military, law enforcement and Search & Rescue operations. The SJX may be used for armed escort, direct fire support, intercept, and scout / patrol riverine type operations.
The SJX are fast, aluminium tunnel hulled craft powered by a single Mercury Optimax 200HP DFI SportJet. The construction and UHMW bottom protection make the SJX ideal for shallow water situations where water depth may limit other types of water craft with inboard or outboard power. The low slung design and fold down windshield allow the craft to navigate low bridges and areas with hanging debris. The three windshield console offers protection from the elements and heaters may be installed.
The wide bottom, seven degree V and dead rise enable the SJX to carry heavy loads in extreme low water conditions. Exposed gravel shoals are no match for the SJX which are easily slid over with adequate speed. There’s little reduction in forward progress due to the optional low friction UHMW bottom protection.
Two inch receiver sockets installed in the bow and transom accommodate a portable winch and or wheel kit to pull the boat off shoals if grounded, or through terrain where vehicles are not available. The SJX jet boats come standard with ramps for loading ATV’s from the front cargo area. The SJX is easily trailerable, launched and recovered by a single individual.
