Used For: Diving and as a ferry
Two x Ford Sabre 212 hp marinized diesels
This boat was used as a dive boat for several years. Mostly on the Royal Charter shipwreck off Anglesey, north Wales looking for gold coins and nuggets. Then in the west of Ireland to ferry materials to an island in Clew Bay, Co Mayo.
She was lifted out of the water as Covid lockdowns started.
The two diesels power two 30cm Dowty Hydro-jets.
The tough military aluminium hull, shallow draft, no propellers and low dive platform made for excellent and safe diving.
The build year is not known, but is probably mid to late 1980s.
Weight around 4 tonnes.
The boat needs new steering. The marine engineer I worked with was due to fit her with new steering, but he moved and I don't have the skill.
Otherwise, she needs the hull anti-foul painted. After three years idle and not working, a full service is needed.
There is a depth sounder and plotter, anchors and line.
I have the full military manuals for the boat.
DO NOT SEND MONEY TO SELLERS YOU CANNOT VERIFY AS GENUINE.
If possible, travel to view the boat or equipment yourself and only buy once you are happy with it.
