JETsynergy will be representing world leading waterjet manufacturer HamiltonJet at this years PACIFIC2013 event.

Since its inception in 2000, the biennial Pacific International Maritime Exposition has continued to expand. The number of commercial maritime and naval defence industry participants from around the world has grown substantially.

As the only comprehensive international exhibition of its kind in the Asia Pacific region, PACIFIC2013 will again provide the ideal showcase for commercial maritime and naval defence industries to promote their capabilities to decision makers from around the world.

Held in the heart of Sydney and on the shores of one of the world's most beautiful harbours, PACIFIC2013 will be the eighth in the series and builds on the highly successful biennial events held in Sydney since 2000.

PACIFIC2013 will be held in conjunction with the 'International Fleet Review' which will be commemorating the centenary of the first entry of the Royal Australian Navy Fleet into Sydney.

HJ-Shell-HJ212-Sprint-Boat-1995In February the factory completed build of the number 10,000 HJ212 waterjet unit. There would be few, if any, waterjets in the world that have reached this milestone.

HJ212-10K-Assembly-AThe first HJ212 was built almost 17 years ago to the day – February 1995 – and was sold to the NZ Marine Division where it was installed into a 132 jet sprinting boat sponsored by HamiltonJet and Shell. (Boat is pictured) Unfortunately the jet proved unsuitable for sprinting so was replaced and its whereabouts is currently unknown.

Serial number 10,000 HJ212 headed to BC Canada, to be installed in a 23ft Harbercraft 2375 jet boat. This boat will be on show at a number of boat expos in Canada during March and profiled on a local TV show, then will be on displayed in Harbercraft’s showroom at its Vancouver branch.

Doing the math - 10,000 HJ212s over 17 years averages out to 588 jets per year, 49 per month and 12 per week. The vast majority of these have gone to the Seattle office – at up to 60 HJ212s per month - for sales into the US Pacific North West.

you-cant-get-much-higher-up-the-murray-river-system-than-hereHamiltonJet have had a presence in Australia from its earliest days, whether it be commercial, Surf Rescue or family boating. The Jetboat Association of Australia Inc, formerly the Jetboat Association of NSW, has recently celebrated its 40th Anniversary and enjoys a long relationship with HamiltonJet and the New Zealand jet boat community at large.

The jet unit in Australia continues to provide families and adventurers the means to explore and enjoy the diverse water ways on offer from vast inland lakes to river plains and high altitude river boating in the Snowy Mountains. The club boasts 3rd generation charter members and even ex-pat Kiwis who boated with Bill and Jon Hamilton in the formative years of jet boating.
