Boat Description

As an Ex- Military Ship she is Ideal for use as a Patrol Vessel in any sea or climate, she is fast, reliable and would be a suitable asset to any sovereign nation concerned with maintaining and/or enforcing fisheries, boundaries, off shore oil drilling installations, Ports or other national maritime interests.

Her Ice Class III Hull, security in adverse conditions such as all water tight hatches and potential for extended range of service of 8,500 miles, (can nearly double with creative tank usage) qualifies her as a First Class Research Vessel, Expedition Yacht, Polar Explorer or Security and Support Vessel.

As an Escort ship, she is well suited and fast enough to accompany any vessel that may have to travel in areas where Piracy is a Danger!

She would be a Menacing Presence and provide Protection to shipping cargoes, crews/persons, oil rigs, Exploration yachts, Research vessels and even ports of call. Even though she is registered and used as a Private not for hire Yacht, she still has her original ammunition lockers intact and operable.

As a Steel Yacht, she is very heavily built and yet has sleek lines and a very fast and efficient hull design. Fifty five U.S. gallons an hour for 180 foot ship moving at speed with comfort and security is hard to beat in todays world but quite a gift, in light of what we have to pay for fuel these days.

She is not just another ex-millitary worn out piece of equipment She is seriously a contender and worth many times her price.

As a Yacht she is far stronger than 98% of the fleet world wide.

As a commercial vessel she is also incredible value and has years of good service in her.
