Sir William Hamilton

Sir William Hamilton OBE

(1899 – 1978) “Innovator, not imitator”

William Hamilton

As well as giving his name to the company he founded in 1939, C.W.F.(Bill) Hamilton left a legacy of combining sound engineering practices with innovation and excellence. As a small boy he had dreamed of a boat that would carry him up the swift flowing rivers of his homeland. Such foresight was typical of this distinguished New Zealand inventor and innovator.

Waterjet History

HamiltonJet Waterjet History

In the early 1950s, when Sir William Hamilton began experimenting with marine jets, he followed the lead of the most successful invention to date, the American Hanley Hydrojet. Using a round centrifugal water pump that drew in the water and expelled it through a steer able nozzle under the boat, he was able to achieve an encouraging but unspectacular speed of 11 mile per hour.

75 Years- CWF Hamilton

The HamiltonJet parent company, CWF Hamilton & Co Ltd, was formed in 1939, centred on the workshop at Irishman Creek Station. For the next 50 years the company pursued a policy of planned diversification, a natural progression from the effective innovation and expertise initiated by the founder Sir William Hamilton.
