Rêvo Jet Boats
We specialise in designing and building jet boats.
From small river boats with jet ski engines and running gear to 8 metre ocean going jet boats to commercial workboats with jet propulsion, jet boats are an area of specialised expertise we pride ourselves in.
We particularly specialise in sea-going jet boats and believe that a well designed jet boat is unbeatable.
With the right design the choice of jet will be a decision you will be very happy with at sea.
Rêvo 361 Sportsman Jet (two-man)
70 horsepower 2Si engine and jet unit.
Lightweight hunting and fishing jet boat.
Designed to get you further up rivers for better hunting and fishing.
She will run in two inches of water, but unlike many small jet boats this has safe and secure handling. Light enough to drag and carry past impassable stretches of rivers to more boating beyond or light enough to get yourself out of trouble if you find yourself stuck when you are alone.
These hulls are not just river boats but also very capable in harbours and lakes with a good soft ride and safe handling.
We pull up a single skier no problems at all.
Construction in either aluminium or Polyethylene.
Rêvo 361 Sportsman Jet (three-man)
Shown here is one of our 361 wide body light weight jets which runs jet ski style running gear for moving further up shallow rivers for better fishing and hunting.
This boat has been built by Beachcraft Boats.
The owner called and said when they finally hit the bottom and got out, the leathers on their boots didn't even get wet, just the soles.
They were boating in 2 inches of water!
Then they just picked the boat up and carried it back into about 200mm of water to get planing again. But their real surprise came when they ran the boat in the harbour and were very impressed with how she ran in rough water.
He was happy to cross the Karitane Bar in the little boat.
A very versatile little boat that can be used in rivers or on harbours and lakes
Rêvo 551 Diesel Jet Work Boat
Built by Pacific Hydraulics in Whangarei.
Specifically designed as a work boat running marinised 3.0 litre Toyota diesel engines coupled to a Scott water jet.
Pure work boats designed to do a job.
These boats work in all conditions so have to have good sea keeping qualities but also stability for safety while hauling lines and working nets.
This is an example of a Rêvo specific design to meet specific requirements using jet propulsion. The use of Toyota diesel engines was based on reliability and serviceability anywhere in the world and the need to remove petrol from the mother ships due to fire hazard.
The boats are based purely on function and performance and that in itself makes them attractive to those charged with operating them.
One skipper was quoted as saying, 'everyone will want one of these.'
Rêvo 821 Beachcraft Jet
Designed for fishing and diving along the South Island's West Coast and regularly operates in rough seas across a notorious bar.
The owner can set the boat in the direction he wants and leave the helm.
Described by a professional skipper who conducted sea trials on the boat as the best boat he has ever been on.
The Scott 952 jet unit is superb and offers exceptional perfomance and handling.
