OUR TWO VESSELS
Option 1. - 'Aquatek' a quick 6.8m h/t Stabicraft and SSM certified for a maximum 6 passengers, plus your skipper. For more serious anglers or offshore trips we recommend 4 anglers as being a comfortable number. For family groups and friends on inshore charters, 6 passengers may be fine, but possibly a wee bit congested! Children are very welcome. There is a portable wc on board.
Option 2. - 'Valda M' a 10.4m (34ft) our sedate and historic 1940's wooden fishing vessel. This award winning vessel is certified for 8 anglers plus crew. Valda has 4 berths, a wc and shower as well as cooking facilities. Valda is very suited to the more extensive fishing expeditions and as a classic 70 year old vessel, she also provides a unique venue for corporate entertainment, harbour cruises and offshore multi-day charters for small groups or families.
