I think to have fitted the longest tender ever in a H575 garage.
It is a Highfield Classic 380 RIB with ALU keel.
Of course it has to be deflated and some ‘minor’ mod to the bow part of the garage were needed.
This summer I will do water ski with my kids.

I have an AB9.6 with an aluminum hull and need to deflate the bow tubes when it goes into the garage. The air pump option helps quite a bit with that.

How the ******* did you get a 12+ foot dinghy into the garage?     I just deflate the bow tubes and keep the stern inflated.   You must have to deflate everything as the interior has to be 9.5+.

Not sure about water skiing, but we have a YAMAHA 15 on the dinghy and its peppy enough.

Do you know if you could fit a Williams 325 in there instead of the 285 ?

Elgaard,

I understand the Williams 285 ordered for the 575 has a special steering wheel which is easily removed for storage in the garage. The steering wheel must be removed for storage. I think the standard Williams Jet tenders including the 385 do not come standard with this feature.

I think you also need to consider weight.   One of the reasons for the $18,000 stern gate option to go with the Williams jet tender is that it weights over 600 lbs.    It needed to be reinforced and some beefier hydraulics installed.   A 385 (even if it fits) might weigh even more than that, although I have not checked the specs.

Elgaard,

Rick is correct the 325 WJT weights 340kg(750lbs) dry plus fuel etc. The 285 WJT weights 210kg (465lbs) dry. The transom door with the WJT launching is different to the standard door and there are two single action (longer) hydraulic rams required (one for each side) which extend into the aft cabin when the door is in the up position. To launch and retreive the transom door needs to open to an angle greater than horizontal. We had a 385 WJT on a previous boat which we ran for an owner and although the WJT was fairly new it was often breaking down and expensive to repair. There is limited room even in the 385. The manual for the WJT say you should not tow the tender so you always need to garage before moving your 575. In short I wouldn't have a WJT is they were giving them away.

Agree wholeheartedly with Wayne.    The other issue with the WJT is that there is far less room in their tenders than in the AB aluminum bottom we have.    Yes...  a steering wheel looks nice... but we have 2 dogs and there is no way 4 people and 2 dogs are going to fit on a WJT.   Wasn't practical for us.

FWIW

To fit my 3.80 rib I had to slightly modify the interior of the garage.
A small part of the area dedicated to the raft has to be shaped to accept the bow of the tender.
Not a very easy task.
I trust the 3.60 version would be a more clever choice.
Of course the rib has to be completely deflated.
As a matter of fact I use the garage only in case of long cross and in case of strong wind forecast.
And for winter time.
In any case I am very satisfied with my Highfield 3.80 and Yam 25 hp FI
It is a rather big and comfortable tender for a 57’ SY
Normally I tow it.

The AB 3.9 rib fits fine.   All I do is deflate the bow tube a bit.   Stern tubes stay full. No modifications to the garage needed

The aluminum version I have weighs around 110 lbs with the bow locker

I guess that settles it regarding the wjt haha...

One thing is for sure, i need to replace the silly little RIB260 Geniuss i have now...

Ill have a look at the AB 3.9 rib instead, what kind of outboard do you have with it? It annoys me to have the OB mounted on the rail and having to dismount it everytim i need the dinghy.

I dont like towing

Best
