Escalating gasoline/petrol prices has created much greater awareness of the need for cost effective, lightweight marine engines which are both economical and have a high specific power output. The trend towards smaller agile boats, which are suited to shallow braided rivers also demands an Engine/Jet combination with instantaneous throttle response. As well as being super responsive, Ecotec engines incorporate dual balance shafts which results in smoothness, comparable with V8s.

Inquiry for our Ecotec family of marine engines has been rapidly increasing, in particular from the Jet Boating regions of NZ, Canada and the USA.

Jet Boat Base now assembles Ecotec Marine`s 2.2 litre, 167 HP naturally aspirated and 252 HP supercharged engine packages at their well equiped workshop facility in Christchurch, New Zealand. Their services include: “turnkey” engines, “complete” boat packages, “retrofitting” & repairs.
