Jacuzzi JBP XLeratortm and AT Energizer Parts ®


Jacuzzi YJ XLerator Kits : The original design of the YJ  Axial flow Jet Drive developed by Jacuzzi Brothers in the early 60's works well for 200 to 350 horsepower utility and work boat craft where low speed cruising and skiing are the main objective.  But when when added larger horsepower and high performance goals are demanded this  mixed flow conversion kit is a must have . This Jet Boat Performance XLerator kit ® converts this low pressure volume Axial style jet to a mixed flow High Pressure Jet Drive, User DYI friendly these kits come with all needed to make your conversion a success , add to that comprehensive professional Tech support 7 days a week and you wont be disappointed in you conversion * Note our JBP conversions can easily include Place Diverter hydraulic or Manual trim , steering rudders, High strength Stainless impellers, and inducer impellers (additional cost)
 
Jacuzzi WJ and HJ XLerator :The basic WJ & HJ Jacuzzi was a good jet  pump,and in standard configuration can be made to well  unfortunately because of the lack of aftermarket interest and the popularity of the Berkeley style jets there is a extremely limited amount of perfromance parts available for these drives Additionally the OEM parts to repair these have become increasingly more costly in recent years and when a WJ or HJ suffers a catastrophic failure the cost may exceed a Conversion kit to repair . The JBP XLerator conversion kit changes the internals to use an American Turbine® / Berkeley® / Dominator® Style impeller, JBP high flow bowl and nozzle assembly.  This also allows the use of standard Place Diverter® or Turbine Trim ® and droop snoots, straight snoots, wedges etc if desired.Impellers can also be easily upgraded to Mag Bronze and Stainless as well

 

Jet Boat Performance Panther XLerator mixed flow conversion , Panther® drive modifications have long been considered, pondered, and experimented with by many in our industry. Several years ago with a little "time on our hands", we @ JBP decided to try to "dream up" a modification to this existing marine jet drive, due in part to what in our opinion was less than satisfactory overall performance. The performance "wall", in our opinion, was even more evident when this jetdrive was "asked" to perform with the increased power available in todays market. We had several times "excised" the characteristic fiberglass inlet pod from these boats, rebuilt the fiberglass bottom and installed Berkeley style jets with great success.  However this was a messy time consuming and expensive proposition. The modified jet offers a "bolt in" alternative to that process, reusing or "utilizing" the existing drives original suction piece and essentially discarding everything else, thus requiring only very minor modifications to the boat hull, structure and hardware. The Energizer Kit offered and manufactured by the prestigious American Turbine Co. (sold by us and its authorized dealers), is designed and based on our original concept and modified unit we @ JBP experimented with two years ago. The modified drive offers significant performance gains, is an "owner friendly", simple economical repair and installation, and has the added luxury and advantage of being able to accept American Turbine, Dominator and Berkeley style "bolt ons", such as droop snoots, bowl, wedges, rudders, Turbine Trim and Place Diverter trim. Original proto types of this modification have shown dramatic drops in operating RPMs while providing modest gains in acceleration, power and overall performance. Complete Modification and Energizer kits are now available and are, at this writing being installed with oustanding results! Please feel free to contact us for more information or for any other Jet and V-drive parts accessories or services you might need.

Jacuzzi YJ Energizer ® :The original design of the YJ works well for 300-350 horsepower applications where low speed cruising and skiing are the main objective.  But when when larger horsepower and higher performance goal are demanded this kit is a must.  This energizer kit ® converts this low pressure volume style jet over to a mixed flow High Pressure Jet Drive.  What does that mean? Basically speaking this alows you to put a American Turbine® / Berkeley® / Dominator ® style jet drive in your boat with out having to do fiberglass or hull work. This kit also allows the use of a place diverter or turbine trim and a droop snoot if desired. 
 
Jacuzzi WJ Energizer® :The WJ Jacuzzi is also a great pump, unfortunately because of the lack of aftermarket intrest there is an extremely limited amount of perfromance parts available. This energizer kit changes the internals to use an American Turbine® / Berkeley® / Dominator® Style impeller, bowl and nozzle assembly.  This also allows the use of standard Place Diverter® or Turbine Trim ® and a droop snoot if desired.
