We currently have a fleet of four powerboats primarily used for safety on the water. We also use them to teach power boating courses, such as RYA Powerboat Level 2 and RYA Safety Boat.
Our RIBs come from a local boat builder in Caernarfon. Menai Marine have been really impressive in their advice and service and it is great to be able to have a custom built boat for our location. It is also reassuring having them just down the road for when we accidentally break things.
We have 2 RIBs they built for us which are 480 Atlanta RIBs with a 50hp Injection Tohatsu two stroke outboard. The console is custom, being ideal for providing safety cover by leaving a fairly large open space behind the console to work. We have one fitted with an A-frame, navigation lights, console GPS, VHF, and steering compass.
The Tohatsu engines have been strongly recommended to us by Menai Marine due to their serviceability, performance and fuel economy. These features make them very attractive to us as a training center.
