MULTIPLE USE CONVERTED FISHING TRAWLER
An extremely versatile and very attractive, 16 berth, converted fishing trawler. Completely rebuilt with hundreds of thousands spent in the early 2000s to add an additional deck and to raise the bridge above its previous level. Recently refurbished including extensive insulation that was completed 2 years ago in preparation for whale watching and diving expeditions off the Norweign and Islandic coastlines.
The boat can be skippered commercially up to 20 miles from safe haven in UK waters with a commercially endorsed Advanced Power Boat qualification (3 miles with Power Boat Level 2) - see Annex 3 of the MCAs MGN280 guidelines. An Off-shore Yachtmaster, Ocean Yachtmaster or MCA Boatmaster qualification is required to skipper the boat commercially up to 60 miles from safe haven.
Fuel usage is very economic at approximately 40 litres per hour with an 8.5 knots cruising speed. The boat can hold in excess of 16,000 litres of fuel and with 4 tonnes fresh water storage, 5.4 tonnes for shower water and 1.2 tonnes black water, this boat can go a long way without stopping. She is strong and designed for force 8+ gales.
In the past Lady Kate was used as a dive boat - she has a compressor on board and a dive lift, she was used for charity challenges and has previously supported a list of celebrities including Richard Branson and his Virgin team to swim from Holyhead to Dublin. She also provided safety support cover for kayaking in 2014 when the Beeline Britain team completed the first ever straight-line journey from Lands End to John OGroats and has been used by ITV to film documentaries about Britains sharks and whales. Most recently she was run as a bed and breakfast hotel in Kinsale, Southern Ireland before travelling to Gosport to be used on the South Coast as a leisure vessel.
