Ribjet Lightwave 12             Starting at $59,900    

The Lighwave 12 (3.8m) is a high performance gas jet tender designed by award winning naval architect Ward Setzer to be the perfect partner to for mid-sized yacht applications. The design is able to accomidate either the classic Lighwave collar system or a half round hypalon inflatable tube set if needed.


The tender provides comfortable seating for a up to 7 passengers and utilizing the Lighwave collar system creats a great amount of internal volume for storage and gear.

It also packs a powerful punch with a top speed of 35+knts. The Lightwave 12 is also available with a 120hp gas engine.
