The boat

MAX CAPACITY: For your comfort and best experience on the water we recommend 4 people maximum. In some cases we can accommodate 5 passengers, please inquire. With the COVID situation we are limited to a max of 4 persons. The boat is sanitized before each use and the crew will wear masks for your protection.

The one and only! This is our flagship, built by Rayglass Protector Boats and customized by none other than Mr. Pablo Sanchez over at Protector USA in Richmond. It is about 30 feet long by 10 feet wide, powered by EPA rated Ultra Low Emissions 4 stroke twin Yamaha 150HP, it weighs in at about 7,000 lbs as equipped (no passengers). The cabin is big enough to sleep 2, it also has a private toilet. Cruises at 32 mph with a wide open throttle max speed of 40 mph. It is very clean and comfortable and is fitted with the latest technology in marine electronics.

For those who don't know, this is one of the most seaworthy boats ever made. If comfort and above all safety is important, then you have chosen the right watercraft. Originally designed for the New Zealand Coast Guard and other law enforcement and military groups, this watercraft is virtually unsinkable and shines in heavy seas. Private and government special intervention agencies throughout the world rely heavily upon RHIB boats to conduct both tactical and rescue operations in gale force storms. Protector is used by America's Cup officials and teams and is the official supplier to Emirates Team New Zealand.

This boat will take you there and back. Safely! Your only obligation is to relax and enjoy the trip.

CAPTAIN SERVICES ARE INCLUDED IN PRICE! Please NOTE: We cannot rent this boat out without a captain because the insurance companies we have tried so far do not offer this type of coverage anymore. Thank you for your understanding.
