Our boat

Of our own design and made to measure especially for us in 2004, our 12 metre fibreglass boat caters not only for all the specific needs of our divers but also for those who accompany us aboard.
Powered by a 300 hp VM DETROIT DIESEL engine she is fast and particularly stable. The cockpit, galley and toilets are all to fore leaving 8 metres of open deck at diver’s complete disposal and the upper deck extends for 6 metres over the cockpit, includes a refreshments area, and is dedicated to soaking up the sun.

The stern diving deck is almost at water level and has two easy ladders that make getting back on board with all your diving gear on child’s play. There are also two hot and cold freshwater showers on deck which are handy for a healthy post diving shower and also to rinse off regulators and camera equipment.
On arrival, all our divers are given a numbered coat hanger and a holdall. Once aboard, the weight belts may be found on a shelf with the same number.This way, even in the busier periods divers can easily trace all their gear – by number.
Every evening, all these items are stowed in the closed part of the deck to avoid shifting equipment daily, which can be quite wearing, and then laid out on the benches in the morning by our staff. All diving equipment is only taken off the boat at the end of the holiday.

One thing that is particularly appreciated by our divers is the decompression bar.This is a 4 metres wide rigid bar that is lowered to a depth of 3.5 metres to provide a convenient place to perform a safety stop during ascent.
Four second stage regulators are attached to the bar and connected to a Nitrox gas cylinder on board.
Those who wish may therefore decompress at the bar while breathing 32% Nitrox.
