First electric jet tender in production

Highfield Boats’ new Highfield EJET330 electric jet tender is now in production.

The EJET330 will stows in the garage of most large yachts over 55ft.

The tender has no propeller and so can be used in very shallow depths and is easily beached.

It is powered by an electric jet propulsion system, developed by New Zealand based ZeroJet, with the technology and design the result of two years of collaboration between the two companies.

“We are proud to be extending our range to embrace zero emissions through sustainable boating,” said Mathilde Delfour, Highfield’s European MD.

“The Highfield EJET330 is a result of many months of development combining Highfield’s durability with ZeroJet’s electric jet propulsion technology, which was recognised with a DAME Award at METS 2023.”

The EJET330 features a 10.8kWh battery and 20kW of power, equivalent to 25hp.

The boat will plane at 11 knots upwards and has a top speed of 20 knots.

The lithium iron phosphate 48V-10A low voltage battery will run for up to seven hours and charging takes from 2.5 hours depending on charger output.
