About Hamilton Jet

With over 60,000 waterjet units installed around the world, HamiltonJet represents the latest in waterjet propulsion technology. They are the preferred choice for the efficient propulsion of a wide range of high speed work and Patrol boats, Fast ferries, Offshore crew boats, Fire boats, Fishing vessels, Recreational and Military craft.

HamiltonJet – through the innovation and inspiration of Sir William Hamilton – pioneered the development of the commercial waterjet 60 years ago, and today each model is designed and built to the standards of the world’s leading certifying authorities. The manufacturing plant includes in-house foundries for casting both stainless steel and aluminium, modern machining facilities and extensive testing and inspection procedures.

The current Hamilton Waterjet range includes models for power inputs from 150kW to 5500kW, for vessels typically up to 80 metres long. All models include features such as integral intake and transition duct for easy installation, steering and reverse functions. All but the smallest units include fully integrated hydraulic reverse systems with jet driven hydraulic pump, control valves & oil-cooler cast into the jet intake.

HamiltonJet also has an extensive database of case studies and practical information relating to the application of waterjets in modern hull forms. Liason with designers, builders and operators from the conceptual design stages through to commissioning ensures a Hamilton Waterjet is correctly matched to the hull for every project. From a few known inputs, an in-house computer program, developed by HamiltonJet, can provide an estimate of speed and other operational parameters for planning monohulls.
