Our RIB Boat “SENSATION”
Our bright orange Rigid Inflatable Boat (RIB) called “SENSATION” is 9 metre/30 foot long and powered by 2 x 200HP petrol engines, is licensed to carry 12 passengers. We are authorised by Christchurch Borough Council to operate sea and harbour pleasure trips from Mudeford Quay and Mudeford Sandbank .
We aim to provide an unforgettable tour that includes spectacular scenery and marine bird life with the exhilaration of travelling at speed onboard our new R.I.B. The boat is very similar to the new inshore RNLI lifeboats that are stationed at Mudeford Quay and around the UK. We intend to obtain speeds of about 30 knots which is 35 miles per hour, if the sea and weather conditions permit. Our RIB is capable of greater speed.
We are licensed by the Maritime and Coastguard Agency to operate 20 miles from a safe haven, in good weather and in daylight. The end of daylight is defined as one hour after sunset.
Amongst other safety equipment the “SENSATION” carries the required liferaft for all onboard and a first aid kit.
