The ground breaking new LightWave Diesel GT6 Jet Bike™ is a game changer in super yacht toys and accessories. The new Diesel GT6 Jet Bike™ is designed and built to international yacht standards for use on yachts. Powered by a 160hp diesel turbo-charged engine, performance is comparable in terms of acceleration, top-end speed (40 + kn) and weight to a petrol powered ski of similar rating. The LightWave Diesel GT6 Jet Bike™ hull design is by Setzer Naval Architects. The GT6 Jet Bike™ is styled by Andrew Langton of Reymond Langton Design to be both beautiful and functional. Available also in carbon fibre, the Diesel GT6 Jet Bike™ is expected to weigh 325kg. Optional upgrades include the latest technology in enhanced safety including proximity and remote control limiters to enable yacht crew to anticipate and avoid hazards.

The Abel Yachts Team understand the limitations imposed by class and other rules on the operation of petrol powered toys and storage of petrol on board a yacht. The restriction on storage of the petrol toys in an internal garage often results in the location of toys on outside decks that yacht owners would prefer to reserve for their own enjoyment. The constant need for refuelling to operate petrol jet skis and other petrol toys is a significant burden for yacht skippers and surveyors. The stylish high performance LightWave Diesel GT6 Jet BikeTM is the solution.  Moreover, boisterous operation of yacht toys by guests in certain locations has increased pressure on Skippers to maintain control, particularly on charter yachts.  See http://www.camperandnicholsons.com/superyacht-news/reckless-jetski-or-tender-handling-crackdown-in-the-south-of-france-2766.htm The latest technology in enhanced safety available on the GT6 Jet BikeTM includes proximity and remote control limiters to enable yacht crew to anticipate and avoid hazards.
