Our Boat

After much searching we belive we have got the boat best suited for our courses.

The reason we went for a RibCraft 585?

  1. The feed back we got from students was they realy enjoyed learning on a small boat.
  2. Being able to turn it around in a tight space the withbthe fredome and response you get from a small boat
  3. This feed-back came form all across our canadidates Mothers, Daghters, Dad, Sons and Grandparents.
  4. However the RYA scheme is moving on and our Ribtc 4.6 was getting old and wasn’t able to run the Advaced schemme Sylabuses.
  5. So the dision was made to not only replace the Ribtec but to replace her with an Advanced Boat which is a commercially coded to MCA/RYA standards.
  6. However the hard bit keep it small enough that we don’t loose the enjoyment and learnng advantage we had from having a smaller boat.
  7. So after discusions with people in the indusrty and Suryeas and advise from the RYA Training department the Rib Craft 585 was the chosen boat.


We also wanted a boat with all the equipment and a good deck lay out.

  1. Centre Consult with side by side seating with Chart Plotter, VHF DSC Radio and Echo Sounder.
  2. All within easy reach and site of the Students and or Instructor.
  3. Morse control in the centre of the consult for good communication with student
  4. Wind screen for keeping you dry and warm.
  1. Side by side Seating Better communication more comfort
  2. This is possibly most important part of the new industry coding and improved standard and nicer for us who are getting older.
  3. Extra Storage
  1. Clear foredeck for easy moving around
  2. Carrying of equipment safety equipment Life raft and auxiliary engine.
