Hey guys and gals! JetBoatPilot is pleased to announce that we're hosting a group buy exclusively for JetBoaters.Net members, starting today and ending Aug 31, 2020.

Rules & Guidelines are as follows:

Participation Levels/Discounts

Lateral Thrusters (For 2003-2018 Year Model Yamaha Boats)

1-10 Lateral Thrusters: 10% Discount
11-15 Lateral Thrusters: 15% Discount
16-20 Lateral Thrusters: 20% Discount
21-25 Lateral Thrusters: 25% Discount
26-34 Lateral Thrusters: 30% Discount
35+ Lateral Thrusters: 35% Discount

11-15 Thrust Vectors: 15% Discount
16-20 Thrust Vectors: 20% Discount
21-25 Thrust Vectors: 25% Discount
26-34 Thrust Vectors: 30% Discount
35+ Thrust Vectors: 35% Discount

Thrust Vector Wake is not included in the group buy at this time. Due to shortages in inventory we have decided to exclude Thrust Vector Wake from the group buy.

RULES

This event includes both Lateral Thrusters and Thrust Vector X, plus Thrust Vector for BRP powered boats. You are not required to buy both items during this event. You may buy one or both based on your needs.

If buying both be advised that combo prices will not be applicable during this sale. Additionally trade in programs such as TV Upgrade and Cobra Fin Trade will not be active during this event.

To participate customers must be a member of JetBoaters.Net and have an active User ID. Customers must email or call our offices and place their orders. We'll put the order in a folder and add it to the count total. Once the max discount level is achieved we'll begin collecting payments. If max discount levels are achieved for a particular product and if all who have committed to buy complete their order and pay, we'll begin shipping early. If we do not hit max discount levels we'll begin charging credit cards at the end of the month and shipments will begin after that. If customers want to pay full price early and receive their order immediately they may do so, with the understanding that they will get refunded the final adjusted discount once the group buy closes on August 31st. This may buy them another month of boat usage with the product on the boat.

Taxes will apply to orders which have Florida delivery addresses and are based on the county of delivery. Domestic shipping rates during this event are $17.95 for individual items and $26.95 for multi item orders. International orders must get shipping quotes. We use UPS for international shipping.

Customers who have older versions of Thrust Vector, Thrust Vector XL and Thrust Vector XV will need to have us e-mail a copy of the Trim Template in order to add Lateral Thrusters to their Thrust Vector equipped boat. Current Thrust Vector X product is fully compatible with Lateral Thruster.

Lateral Thrusters are incompatible with other steering systems. If a customer chooses to combine Lateral Thrusters with another aftermarket steering system, and, if there is ever a warranty claim, we may not be able to honor our limited Lateral Thruster warranty.

Customers may call 850-867-1410 to order by phone or email sales@jetboatpilot.com. Must provide Name, Address, Phone Number, Email Address, Year, Make and Model Of Boat, Product Desired Including Color and JB.Net User ID. Online orders will be charged at regular prices during this event so please call or email if you intend to participate.

I docked in reverse yesterday and did not break a sweat! LTs is an awesome upgrade, and the group buy is the cheapest time to get it!

If you have a SeaDoo sport boat the Lateral Thruster will not work. That is for Yamaha only. Did you order an LT?

So I’m new to the jet boat world. I just bought a 2019 242ES Limited. What would I be looking for?

Depends what your needs are, Thrust Vectors X help with low speed handling, lateral thrusters assist with reverse handling.

I could definitely use both. Where can I see the pricing and are they easy to install?

JetBoatPilot.com will give you a base price, depending how many people buy will determine the discount as listed above. I haven’t installed them as I’m buying on this buy, but from reading on here it seems pretty easy and there how to videos. Jet boat pilot seems to have top notch customer service from what others on here have said.

Very simple install for both, however you only need the Thrust Vector X. The LT won't work with your boat. Watch video on the product page at jetboatpilot.com

With the 2019+ boats Yamaha redesigned the reverse buckets, so you no longer need the Lateral Thrusters. It's debatable if Yamaha did as good of a job as JBP, but they're "good enough" that JBP isn't building LTs for the newer boats.

So I called JBP to order the TVs and LTs. I had heard of JBP's excellent customer service but man was I pleasantly surprised. JBP rep Kristi told me about this discount. I thought to myself.........man she didn't have to say anything about any type of discount. I was blown away at how helpful she was. Most business would have taken my money at full price and then would have never thought twice about it. JetBoat Pilot put themselves in the customers shoes! Great job JBP!! Will def be using them again in the very near future and can't wait till I get my TVs and LTs. Thanks again JBP!
