Dive Support Vessels
Fully Equipped Dive Support Boat
Commercial Rib Charter's 12m Delta cabin Rib CRC 'Tempest' is a fully equipped dive support vessel. She is fitted with a three diver surface supply spread fully certified and IMCA compliant. CRC Tempest has jet propulsion to avoid any entanglement risk and she draws only 60cm. Equipment includes a dive platform, diver recovery ladder and a recovery davit. CRC can also install mobile dive spreads to our other large cabin Ribs including our 15m multi purpose workboat CRC 'Galaxy'.
Tempest is coded to MCA Cat 2 for operation up to 60 miles from a safe haven day or night with up to 12 passengers and 2 crew. The boat has a heated cabin, heads, plentiful equipment stowage and a crew welfare unit. CRC Tempest is a very cost effective dive platform, capable of operating independently or from a mothership if required. The vessel can be mobilised anywhere in Europe by road or sea.
Dive Support Ribs
Our smaller Ribcraft 7.8m and 8.8m boats are available for inshore dive support. With removable seating and an under deck matrix allowing for installation of fittings such as bottle racks and umbilical racks, the boats make ideal smaller dive platforms.
