Novurania introduces new diesel jet tenders
by Risa Merl
Growing its superyacht tender range, Novurania introduces a new line of diesel jet tender models. The new models will include the new Chase 32 twin diesel Jet, Chase 19 Jet and the XP 16 Jet. A high-performance LX 38 with more than 1,000-hp of twin-diesel power is planned for the future.
The 9.8m Chase 32 is a new project for Novurania. It will be powered by twin Yanmar 260hp turbo diesel engines coupled to Alamarine Jets of Finland. According to Hank Brady, head of product development at Novurania, the Chase 32 will also be offered in diesel stern-drive.
The advantages of jets is a they have a small draught, allowing the boats to run in very shallow waters. The twin-engine version will also incorporate joystick control for easy maneuverability. Novurania also utilizes a hydraulic clutch, a benefit of which is a true neutral function and the ability to back flush the jets of any debris.
The three new Jet models will complement Novurania's current Launch series of jet-powered boats ranging from 6 to 7.5 metres.
