PROTECTOR USA has announced, the release of its new leading-edge 20’ Protector – the Jet. An adventurous new design, the Jet combines the unparalleled quality, performance, stability and speed features of a Protector with the fun, power and safety attributes of Yamaha’s top line FX Cruiser SHO. Custom built with Protector’s precision craftsmanship, the boat is engineered to leverage the best attributes of these two great product lines. Protector’s Jet can function as a yacht tender, a ski boat, or as a sailing coach/support boat, and has the capacity to serve as a multifunctional commercial patrol or safety vessel. The Jet’s handling, speed, comfort and safety features make it the highest performing and most versatile boat in its class.

“This boat is fun to drive – fast, comfortable, dry and maneuverable,” said Tiffany Shiebler, marketing director, Protector USA. “Powered by a personal watercraft instead of a traditional outboard with a propeller, our Jet is safe and functional in shallow water and around swimmers, skiers, kite-boarders and sailors.”

Designed with shock-mitigating, chambered hypalon tubes and a solid, hand-laid fiberglass hull, the Jet offers smooth, secure high-speed handling in any sea condition. The ultra-spacious vessel has a 3-person cruiser seat and is equipped with optional rear seating to transport as many as six individuals. Capable of reaching speeds of up to 50 mph, the Jet features a supercharged Yamaha FX Cruiser SHO 1812cc, 4-cylinder, 4-stoke engine with electronic fuel injection. The watercraft is also equipped with a cruise-assist no wake mode, remote ignition transmitter, an adjustable tilt steering station, reverse mode with traction control technology, a 70 litre fuel tank, and dry storage capacity of up to 26-gallons. The Jet weighs 1700 lbs., and has beam that is 7’6” when inflated and 6’ deflated. All PROTECTOR vessels feature five-chambered hypalon tubes; UV and petroleum resistant color options; rubber “sure foot” flooring; and are protected by a 5-year structural hull warranty. The Jet’s optional accessories include rear molded bin seats with storage, a stainless guardrail for bin seats, a single axle trailer with surge braking system, lifting points for hoist launching and LED running lights
