14 Jun Lady Slievemore
Lady Slievemore has just been delivered to customer, Mr Richard O’Hara. Lady Slievemore will be used for Richard’s sea safari operation called Achill Adventure. The boat will be operating of the rugged and exposed West Coast of Ireland, carrying passengers from several locations on the mainland to Achill Island. With safety being the highest priority, the Redbay Stormforce 11 was chosen for its proven record for these types of business.
The RIB has been based on the highly successful Wrap Around Console Mark II, specifically designed for safely carrying passengers in comfort. The arrangement of the RIB features high moulded sides and a clear Lexan Wrap around screen offering maximum visibility to passengers. The screen is topped off with a removable canopy, with the overall effect being a very open and airy RIB with maximum comfort and visibility. Further comfort and peace of mind comes from the High Back Comfort seating with integral 4-point harnesses.
The RIB has been built to comply with the Department of Marine P3 passenger boat regulations. In doing so, the RIB has been fitted with all the necessary safety equipment, including an RFD liferaft, fire protection systems, bilge pumping systems etc.
Power is provided by twin Yamaha ME422 Sti Diesel sterndrives, giving the RIB a total installed power of around 490hp. Other equipment installed on board includes:
- Raymarine C80 Multifunctional Plotter
- Navman Fishfinder
- Icom DSC VHF Radio
- Lexan Wrap Around Screen
- Removeable canopy
- Sea toilet
