28m Dive Ferry

This 150-passenger ferry sets the standard for a Barrier Reef dive expedition vessel! An active ride-control system makes for a smooth ride out to the reef at 31 knots. The large open area on the aft main deck is perfect for dive/snorkel preparation, and a submerged swim platform that spans full vessel width makes for easy water entry. A luxurious seating arrangement with a servery in the main cabin is provided for passenger comfort.
