Available for use by all suitably qualified members: our club RIB is the mainstay of May training trips and fun weekends. She also puts to sea regularly for boat handling courses. Equipped completely as a dive boat she has all the electronics you need for a dive trip – including the locations of all the local wrecks stored in her GPS.
Martha has been in the club longer than all but our longest standing members. Over the years she’s been well maintained and in the last few she had a new engine and new tubes.
* She’s an 18′ RIB
* She has a Yamaha 115 HP petrol engine on the back
* She can cruise at over 20 knots on a flat day
* During the winter she lives on the Thames at Erith Yacht Club, during the summer she lives in Newhaven at Simpson’s marina
Martha is available all year round.
She costs £20 per person per day to hire, subject to a minimum hire fee of £80 for the day. The club will reimburse all petrol costs.
