Motor vessel - Jane 'R'

A converted traditional scottish herring drifter, proven to be one of the most seaworthy crafts afloat, the Jane 'R' has been specially chosen to give you the utmost comfort and safety.

Her powerful engine and heavy displacement hull allows her to tackle most sea condition. At 22 metres she is one of the larger vessels offering a stable and spacious diving platform and long-range capability.

SAFETY & EQUIPMENT

SAFETY is the biggest concern for everyone on a boat and the Jane 'R' more than lives up to expectations and requirements in that department.

She has a Code of Practice (Category 2) for 12 passengers and 3 crew, is fitted with all the latest safety equipment and adheres to international safety regulations.

Additional equipment in the form of Therapeutic Oxygen is carried in case of decompression illness and also carried on board is a wide variety of safety equipment including flares; fire extinguishers; VHF radios; liferaft; and inflatables.

Jane 'R' is also equipped with emergency pumps, escape hatches, harnesses and life jackets.

ON DECK
