Everything You Need to Know About Williams 325

In 1954, William Hamilton designed the first marine jet engine that was commercially successful. He started with the American Hanley Hydro-Jet. However, this did not work for him. On his colleague’s suggestion, he moved the nozzle just above the waterline. He further refined the design and developed the successful business during the 50s and early 60s. However, he refused to take the credit of the invention of marine jet propulsion. He gave credit to Archimedes who lived a few years ago. 

There are many advantages of waterjet propulsion over other marine propulsion forms such as outboard motors, stern drives, surface drives and shafted propellers. It is more reliable because of the following: 

  • Most of its major components are inboard. 
  • It has fewer moving parts. 
  • It is less prone to accidental damage. 

The engine provides you with precise steering control and excellent manoeuvrability even when the speed is high. Depending on the vessel, the engine can achieve speeds from 25-50 knots. The engine has simple maintenance routines and little downtime. It runs smoothly and quietly with no high speed cavitation and no torque effect. As a result, you get maximum comfort on the vessel. The engine is not only safe for people but also for marine life around the vessel. Now more brands are developing jet engines. In this article, we will learn about Williams 325. If you are looking for Williams 325 for sale, you definitely want to know more about it.
