200hp Diesel JetPac

I have an extra Diesel JetPac for sale as my new boat came with a spare.
This is a revolutionary propulsion system that is totally self contained in a buoyant pod that bolts to the transom in much the same way as an outboard.
Contained in the fiberglass pod is a 200hp 2.8l turbo charged and Intercooled diesel engine that drives a 10 stainless steel waterjet via a Kevlar belt.
This unit is new in the factory crate and comes complete with all gauges(Tach,Volt, Oil Pres, Coolant temp, Pyro meter, and boost), controls, wiring harness, mounting hardware and detailed installation manual.
These units retail new for $29,500.
Im asking $15,000.
Unit is crated and ready for shipping.

Perfect for RIBS up to 24' in length.
Just under 8 gallons per hour wide open and much less at cruise.

Lots of info on the manufactures website Daytona Marine Propulsion - Home
Good video on youtube at

Looks very interesting, love the idea of built in buoyancy and a diesel and easily(?) removable.

Neat idea, but a lot of weight hanging off the transom (approx 400kg) and with quite a bit of leverage due to it's length. The buoyancy of it means when it's afloat the weight has less of an effect. I imagine you'd need a beefy transom if you were going to trailer the boat around.

I took a video of the JetPac running.
It's a very nicely designed and built unit.

I would imagine that one would modify their trailer so that the pod would be directly supported in a cradle that could be raised and lowered a few inches to facilitate launch and recovery.

Did Daytona Marine buy out Sword Marine?

I would think there is very easy access to the engine if work needs to be carried out.
