1990 - 2016 Jet Raider

The 'Thoroughbred' - yeah right

A sleek monohull, powered by twin water jets, Jet Raider holds a special ‘love her/hate her’ place in the hearts of Waiheke Island commuters.

Jet Raider entered service for Fullers on the Waiheke run in July 1990, and is still used as a stand-in vessel when there are high volumes of visitors, or when other boats are unavailable. It was sold in 2016.
