Something REALLY cool is coming soon to Adventure Naples – A completely new addition to our family and honestly North America: Jet Boat Naples!
We’re launching Jet Boat Naples in early 2012 as an all-new Southwest Florida attraction with The ODIN – the first Jet Boat in the Adventure Naples fleet! You can actually come and see it in person at the Naples Boat Show from January 27th to 29th! We’ll be posting all the details about the boat show shortly, but first, let’s make a few things clear:
We haven’t just built a jet boat; We’ve built a jet boat with some of the most sophisticated engineering and highest quality components in the world. The ODIN, custom made in New Zealand, is a 25-foot, 24-person plus 1 driver jet boat featuring lightweight all-aluminum construction, and two massive GM Vortec V8 engines. The highly sophisticated design, engineered for speed and agility, allows the ODIN to travel at speeds in excess of 50 MPH and perform some very exciting maneuvers! However, the vessel will not travel in excess of 35 MPH due to U.S. Coast Guard regulations.
The most unique aspect of the ODIN, however, is its jet propulsion system – consisting of dual Hamilton Waterjets! The level of quality in our jet propulsion system is very uncommon outside of military applications. They are built to handle A LOT of power – up to 6,500hp to be exact – so rest assured, Jet Boat Naples will offer the best Jet Boat experience around. However, there’s not really anything to compare it to for hundreds of miles!
Believe it or not, all that power and speed doesn’t come at the cost of other important factors like safety. Here are a few facts about jet-propelled watercrafts:
The ODIN and Jet Boat Naples will launch in early 2012. Make sure to keep an eye on our blog and our website at CruiseNaplesFlorida.com for all the details on this new addition to the Cruise Naples family and also for details on our premiere at the 2012 Naples Boat Show!
