I've been a big fan of SJX for quite a while. They do a bigger model than this one that has two Mercury jets. Love their videos as well; unashamedly american.

Awesome,

Remove the roof from a 1993 Elddis Typhoon, flip it upside down and fit the front window from a military Hummer. Next turn it into a jet ski and presto...you have an SJX.

Not the most esthetically pleasing of boats (IMHO) but do look like a whole load a fun though.

These boats are clearly well built and as I said they now do a 28ft model. However, I wonder how seaworthy they would be?

Dunno. But they look like they'd dip the bow and take a biiiig drink of ocean!

I'm gonna pass.

All we need now is an aluminum fabricator that could build the design (without the bow rider scoop) for the British market.

... Just needs tubes.

SJX will supply their boats with foam sponsons if required.
