Jet Boats with Mercury Sport Jet

Postby intruder » Wed Jun 12, 2019 5:04 pm

Hi, I'm still on a path of understanding the different jet boat options, and who has what.
What builders use the Sport Jet as a standard power plant. I've looked at a bunch of websites but it's like finding a needle in a haystack

Thanks in advance for any help you can give

My understanding is there not making the sportjet anymore .

Hewescraft is going to Rotex smaller and way more HP.

Ali-Craft build about 50% with the sport jet option. They have learned several tricks that work very well in their boats.

Firefish still builds them, last I heard their dealer Windsor Motorsports had several in stock. He had a few on the jig as well when I was there last.
