Our Boats – We are delighted to introduce our two boats, Mustang and Millbrook.
'Mustang' Humber Ocean Pro 6.8m, a design based on the Humber Arctic Challenge Craft, with the best performing hull available and sea keeping characteristics second to none. It has the bonus of shock mitigation suspension seats for helm and navigator, which reduces the human fatigue factor hugely and also of course minimises the likelihood of injury as a result of impact or jarring.
Our boat is coded to Category 4 with a 3R endorsement. This gives us the capability to take the vessel up to 10 nautical miles from a safe haven all year round and at night. This is the highest coding categorization possible for an open RIB and allows us to utilise the maximum sea area.
From the Humber RIBs website: "This range of R.I.Bs will surpass your expectations. Offering the ultimate in all round performance and handling whilst enduring the harshest of sea conditions and sporting a unique multi chine deep V hull, a high sheer bow and over sized tube, this model range has proven its superiority and status as the UK’s number one choice.
Designed with maximum versatility which would meet the demands of the professional dive, rescue and commercial operators, whilst its stylish good looks appeals to the sports and leisure user alike. Ideal for the more serious RIB cruising enthusiast, these craft are capable of travelling, faster, further and in more comfort than other comparable craft available on the market."
"If you haven’t tried shock mitigation-type seating, believe me, it’s a joy and transforms the whole ribbing experience”.
'Millbrook' is the flagship of our fleet, a Nelson 42 motor cruiser and a former Southampton pilot boat. She still retains much of her pilot boat layout today. She operates new twin 180hp Volvo Diesel engines and has a cruising speed of 7-10kts with a maximum of 17kts. Nelsons are renowned throughout the world for their seakeeping qualities and Millbrook certainly lives up to this. She is coded by the MCA (Maritime & Coastguard Agency) for 12 people which enables us to charter her with skipper for 10 passenengers and 2 crew. We also have full RYA recognition to run the motor cruising courses which range from Helmsman to Yachtmaster Offshore.
'Blue Falcon' is a Moody 36 centre cockpit yacht that has sailed round the world with her previous owners. Accommodation for seven is divided into three compartments of double bunk aft, two ‘V’ bunks forward, and a single pilot berth with two further bunks available in the saloon. She has two heads (toilets), hot and cold water system, and a galley capable of cooking a three course meal for the crew.
