Exciting news this week, the brand new charter boat through Cameron and Struan is due for delivery this week. Here are a couple of pictures from her on sea trials. We will be using the 12m Schiehallion
for our Basking Shark Tours and she will be a amazing platform to work from.
She runs twin yanmar 380hp diesels whilst having suspension seating for 14 people. Her all round visibility is great for wildlife spotting and for the skippers visibility of swimmers and sharks. She also runs on jet drives which makes things far safer for swimmers too.
Her cruising speed of 28 knots will make our journey out to the basking shark hotspot go by in no time at all. Along with her offshore capabilities, any rough weather we encounter will be navigated comfortably and safely. The guys are waiting on a suitably weather window to bring her from Northern Ireland and should be in Oban soon.
