Castoldi Press Release
Golden Arrow Marine are delighted to announce our appointment as the exclusive UK Distributor for Castoldi S.r.l. including sales, service and spare parts for Castoldi Jet and Castoldi Jet Tender.
The Castoldi company was founded in the early 1930’s by Luigi Castoldi, an ingenious and acclaimed engineer. In the 1960’s Castoldi pioneered the development of water jet propulsion and is widely considered the inventor of the water jet propulsion system and responsible for it becoming accepted as an efficient and reliable form of propulsion.
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 remain 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 have 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.”
