Are there any RIBs under 13 feet with waterjet or stern drives?

Are there any RIBs under 13 feet with waterjet or stern drives?
I would like to avoid the mess/fuss of a 40hp outboard for a tender.

Most jet drives are internally mounted, as will be a stern drive; that will eat up an awful lot of space in a smallish RIB. Not saying you can't do it, of course (I'm pretty sure they're out there.)



For a couple of examples. (Googled "RIB +jet")
