We are a family-run company based in North Lincolnshire on the banks of the Humber Estuary.
Established in 2019, we specialize in skippered charter hire of both Rigid Inflatable (RIB) and Soft Inflatable (SIB) boats for both commercial and leisure use. We also facilitate RYA training through our training partner Humber Rescue. Book a course through us and help support one of the busiest independent lifeboat services in the country!
We are mobile and can operate anywhere in the UK.
See our ‘Private Charter‘, ‘Commercial Charter‘ or ‘Training‘ pages for full details.
Our main boat is a 6 metre Humber Destroyer, which is an extremely rugged and well proven boat manufactured here in the UK.
Powered by a Johnson 140hp 4 stroke outboard engine, giving a top speed in excess of 30 knots, this makes her ideal for both rapid transits to sites and for continuous slow speed operations.
She carries an MCA category 3R commercial coding certificate, allowing operations up to 20nm from a safe haven in favourable weather and daylight, or up to 10nm at night, for up to 5 persons.
As she is trailer launched, we can operate from anywhere that has a suitable slipway, beach or boat lift.
RIBs are incredibly versatile, seaworthy boats and can be utilised for many commercial and leisure purposes. We are able to mount a wide variety of survey equipment to the vessel and in the past have undertaken activities ranging from beam trawling to unexploded ordinance clearance.
Our skipper, Mike, has over 17 years experience of operating fast planing boats and has held an RYA Advanced Powerboat commercial endorsement since 2010. He is also an RYA Advanced Powerboat instructor, VHF Assessor, First Aid Instructor and a coxswain at Humber Rescue independent lifeboat.
Until June 2020 he had been managing RIB operations at the University of Hull, carrying out a wide variety of survey (water & sediment sampling, hydrographics, scientific fishing, ROV operations) for research, teaching and commercial purposes.
