Castoldi Jet distributorship
Golden Arrow Marine has announced its appointment as the exclusive UK Distributor for Italian jet drive manufacturer Castoldi S.r.l.
Castoldi water jets have many unique features, the main one being the integrated reduction and reversing gearbox with multiple gear ratio options. This provides optimum matching of the jet to the engine delivering maximum performance and efficiency. The integrated gearbox also reduces overall installation length, an important factor in many installations.
Castoldi remains a family owned business dedicated to engineering design, innovation and excellence. There are over 40,000 Castoldi water jets in service worldwide, installed in various types of commercial, pleasure and military vessels. The range is suitable for power inputs from 81kW (108hp) to 1986kW (2663hp) depending on hull form and duty type. Castoldi jets are available with Castoldi control systems from simple mechanical/hydraulic control to sophisticated ACES fully electronic control system including steering and joy stick operation for multi-unit installations.
Martin Bizzell, Engineering Director, at Golden Arrow Marine commented “We are very pleased Castoldi has chosen to work with us as their UK Distributor. There is a great deal of synergy between our companies with the emphasis on engineering excellence and customer focus. We are excited by the opportunities this brings and look forward to supporting Castoldi UK customers old and new.”
