Adventure Naples is bringing something new to Southwest Florida – and really North America – a jet boat called ODIN. This one-of-a-kind vessel will be introduced to the public at the Marine Industries Association of Collier County boat show January 27th through the 29th.
This water adventure boat uses an exclusively designed jet propulsion system originally developed in New Zealand by Hamilton Jet Company. The specially designed propulsion system offers maximum maneuverability and safety. Using no propeller or rudder, its safe for the environment, very quiet and offers a smooth ride. It also makes the vessel capable of performing 360-degree adrenaline pumping “kiwi turns” and the renowned Hamilton stop! Twenty-five feet long and ten feet wide, the ODIN is designed to carry 24 passengers and is powered by twin 385 horsepower engines, capable of reaching speeds in excess of 50 miles per hour; the official operational speed enforced by United States Coast Guard is 35 miles per hour.
Not only created for thrill rides, the ODIN will also be used for eco cruises along the Naples Inner Coastal waterway and the North 10,000 Islands. Its jet propulsion system is quiet and smooth creating optimum bird and wildlife watching experiences.
The Julian family has previously owned and operated this type of boat in New Zealand, and this type of vessel has been a part of their fleet of “camera boats” for their sister company Marine Team International. Along with the existing Adventure Naples fleet, the ODIN will be docked at historic Tin City in downtown Naples.
