Rêvo Boxta 45
Rêvo Boxta 45.
4-5 seat Non Reinforced Plastic (NRP) jet boat.
The big strong silent type.
Commissioned by an owner of the smaller Boxta who said "the boat is so good I don't want to boat in anything else now". But he did want to be able to take family and friends aboard so commissioned the Boxta 45.
Here is what he said about it:-
The boat is so smooth and quiet and handles rough water so gently without banging.
Performance and handling are superb. So responsive.
She planes so quickly and at such a low speed. Coming down river is very safe. You have so much control.
She just goes where you point her. Handling is superb.
Can't believe how easy it was to get the boat back to water. And when we got it there it required so little water get planing. About one third of other boats this size.
It is one tough boat. We ran it 40 metres high and dry. No damage at all.
The boat is so easy to work on for maintenance. The full engine bay and cover is brilliant.
I couldn't be any happier. She is perfect.
Fully fabricated Polyethylene hull professionally designed/engineered and professionally built using new technology for an even better stronger boat more accurate hull shape.
Chevy L86 alloy V8
Scott 852 water jet.
This unit is fitted with a trim nozzle but the owner does not use it. He does not need to alter the trim at any speed. It is all set by the superior design which increases efficiency and improves handling making the boat faster and safer. No chine walking at speed in this boat!
125 Km/Hr top speed.

This beautiful boat is being built in the USA. Designed to follow the clients son around the yacht racing course without impacting on the race. It has low wash and very efficient hull chracteristics. Designed to operate for long periods at slow speed but with the ability to race to the top mark at 20 knots when needed in all conditions.
This 8.8 metre jet boat is a custom design for DIYNO Kitset Boats. The owner/builder was originally looking at a standard 801 but his choice of engine put it outside the skope of that hull so we have done this custom design for him. This is the largest boat to utilise my alloy jig/trailer option. The alloy jig becomes the trailer once the hull is constructed. Very good light, strong and quiet trailers which are easy to launch and reteieve the boats from. The full weight of the trailer is about half of a steel trailer weight, which in this case puts the all up weight of the boat with fuel and trailer under 3,500Kg.
The boat is 8.8 metre hull length, 2.75 metre beam. Engine is a Duramax putting out 450Hp coupled to a Hamilton Jet 274.
Speed will be 41 knots. I will post progress of the build as it goes.
This is a small water taxi being built in Fiji for the tourism sector there. It utlises my WASP powercat hull form which is ideal for this type of boat.
Key features of the design are:-
Able to operate at any speed
Very dry boats
Very safe in all sea conditions
Great load carriers without detriment to performance
Very stable but without the quick motion of other powercats
Leans inwards in a turn
Very efficient without the use of foils
Great access on and off from the bowramp steps.
Also good boarding platforms both sides at the stern
The first boat will run a single 60 Hp outboard engine centrally mounted. It will carry up to 18 people at 16-18 knots. Two subsequent boats will run twin 60 Hp outboards.
WASP 825 Whale Watch Boat
This boat is being cut now and will be in FIJI ready to start assembly prior to Christmas. This open model is for whale watching with 10 passengers but there is a semi-enclosed version also for guest transfers to and from resorts in Fiji. Benefits are very stable, very dry comfortable ride in open water and very efficient without the the expense and problems of a foiled hull.
The whale watching boat has side doors in the hull to get passengers in and out of the water to interact with the marine mammals.
Construction started on the Rêvo WASP 1302 45 passenger ferry
Covid 19 slowed progress but the kit set finally arrived at Cobra Boats Fiji. They heven't wasted any time getting the boat to this stage in less than a week. They are hoping to have the hull plated and welded off by Monday week.
LOA 13 metres
2x 325 horsepower Suzuki outboards
45 passengers and crew combined
