One of the toughest tenders available on the market. This Zodiac MILPRO HURRICANE PROLUXE 878 has a powerful Volvo 370 HP TAMD63PU engine combine with a Roll Royce Kamewa waterjet FF K28 series. This jet boat is optimised for performance and these models are the go for many military's around the world.

The Proluxe 878 DJ hull and deck structures are constructed entirely from marine grade aluminum. The structure is Metal Inert Gas (MIG) and Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG) welded 100% or intermittently as required. Deck plates are mechanically fastened to the deck and sealed with a marine grade sealant to ensure watertight integrity.

The Durarib® collar is constructed from three separate components; the internal inflatable bladder, the closed cell foam layer and the external fabric skin. The separate port and starboard sections are joined at the bow. The
Durarib® collar resembles an inflatable collar and can be fitted with similar options.

The internal inflatable bladder is constructed from fabric that consists of an external layer of hypalon, a core of polyester fabric and an internal layer of neoprene. The port and starboard inflatable bladders are identical and are
filled through a single standard fill valve on each side. A relief valve on each section provides over inflation protection.

The inflatable bladder is contained within an internal cavity within a closed cell foam layer (ethyl vinyl acetate) that isolates the inflatable bladder from the external skin of the Durarib® collar protecting it from damage. The foam is
formed to the external shape of the Durarib® collar. The external skin is constructed from a fabric consisting of an external layer of hypalon, a core of polyester fabric and an internal layer of neoprene (as per the inflatable bladder). It is outfitted with rubbing strakes and lifelines, as is the inflatable collar (see section 2.3.1.1). The entire unit is mechanically attached to the hull structure.

General water jet unit advantages to a propeller installation:

As a rule of thumb, the water jet unit gives higher overall efficiency,
in comparison with a corresponding propeller installation, at speeds
exceeding 25 knots.
Superior maneuverability at all speeds.
No underwater appendages which results in shallow draft and safe
operation.
No risk of overloading the engine, low noise and vibration levels. This
means longer service life and low maintenance costs.
High thrust at low speeds, giving fast acceleration.

Competitive advantages of the FF-series over other water jet unit manufacture:
Lightweight and tough. Fabricated in aluminium and with thorough
strength calculations.
Easy installation. Delivered painted and complete with a structurally
dimensioned inlet duct for easy installation by means of bolting or
welding.
Easy service and maintenance. Wear parts are easy to replace without
any special tools. Low risk of damage. No gear shifting.
Best corrosion resistance. Fabricated of marine aluminium. Impeller
housing is lined with polyurethane to minimize wear and corrosion.
