Our NEW DIVE
This is our new (2016) Dive Boat
built by Sailabration Houseboats, Inc. in Powell, TN. This vessel is 39' x
14' and will seat 34 people. Our new vessel has twin Honda 4-stroke 90 h.p.
outboard engines. The benches have tank wells to hold diver tanks and have
plenty of height so divers can stow their gear bags. We will use this
vessel for diving, swimming & snorkeling charters and lake tours. We
will also use this vessel for emergency situations such as drownings. Eric
and I are very excited to finally have a new vessel custom built for the diving
community. This vessel will allow us to travel further on the lake to new
dive sites in less time with more comfort for the patrons. Our port and
starboard ladders are 30 inches wide with 6" deep rungs and extend 30
inches beneath the surface for easy boarding of the vessel.
