Alamarin-Jet have always favoured the LONG TAIL installation method, by this phrase we refer to mounting the jet at the transom which means that the majority of the jet body is located outside the vessel.
This long tail installation allows for much less space to be occupied by the jet inside the vessel, allowing for smaller engine rooms, reduced LCG and also simpler sterndrive repowering.
We had a need from our customers to be able to install our jets SHORT TAIL though, some required overall vessel length to be reduced, some needed the inspection hatch to be located inside the hull for various reasons, and many had a platform with other jet manufacturers and wanted to switch to our product but did not want to make significant hull changes.
Therefore we designed our patented COMBI FRAME design.
It allows both short tail and long tail installation with only a different hull insert.
