The "Diver Down" is a 42 foot long fully U.S. Coast Guard certified crew boat capable of carrying up to 18 divers to the various shipwrecks off Morehead City. She is powered by quiet efficient twin Caterpillar 3208 375HP Turbocharged Diesel engines. She will run over 19 kts. in the ocean.  There is a large swim platform on the stern of the boat with a large easy to get to stainless steel fin ladder and hand rails for easy access back onto the boat after your dives.

As far as electronics goes....the Diver Down has it all:

    * Radar
    * 2 GPS
    * 2 VHF
    * Hi-Band (Shortwave SSB)
    * EPRIB
    * Color bottom finder
    * Auto pilot

She is fully capable handling any sudden rough ocean conditions. You can feel right at home on the Diver Down while diving The Graveyard of the Atlantic Ocean.
