Hamilton Jet has, for almost 50 years, developed and manufactured waterjet propulsion units. A leading supplier in a technologically demanding category, Hamilton Jet recently completed multi-million dollar factory upgrades to accommodate rapid growth.
Offering 15 models, Hamilton Jet's niche is vessels typically up to 164 ft. (50 m). The company's smallest model, the HJ212, is the designed as the propulsion mode of choice for small river craft. Hamilton Jet recently introduced the high thrust 4.1HTT "Turbo" impeller for the HJ212 unit, which provides extra power to get out of the "hole" and improves cruisingspeed economy. Hamilton Jet's largest model, the HM811 (810 mm diameter impeller), was specified for large work boat and ferry projects in Europe, Asia and the U.S. These orders include a fleet of seven 151 -ft.
(46-m) passenger ferries to be built by Damen Shipyards Singapore for a Portuguese operator, a pair of crewboats for the Gulf of Mexico oil industry and another pair of crewboats for operation in Africa. The company has experienced rapid growth from all regions worldwide and many market segments. A 20- vessel 32-ft. (10-m) Patrol Boat project from the Middle East, rescue RIBs in the U.K., whalewatch excursion vessels and passenger ferries in the U.S., and patrol boats for the Mexican Navy highlight the diverse range of opportunities where Hamilton Jet has been successful within the last 12 months.
R&D is the Key Ongoing research and development (R&D) programs — combined with a strong international distributor support network and an exclusive focus on wateijet technology — are viewed as crucial by the manufacturer to ensuring its future success. All Hamilton waterjets are a complete packaged unit, including the control system, designed and set up for each particular application.
To keep the units running once in service Hamilton Jet's protected impeller and lack of exposed parts helps to eliminate the risk of impact damage.
Also, engines cannot be overloaded when driving a waterjet, which reduces engine maintenance requirements and increases engine life significantly.
