The Boat

The Scubapro I, II, and III make a fine set of triplets! These identical boats are fast, comfortable purpose-built dive boats. Each has 14 twin and 2 double cabins, with 8 bathrooms with an overnight capacity of 32 divers. The boats are air conditioned throughout.

These boats are all new, having been built in '98 and '02 and '04. ProDive's maintenance of these boats has kept all three in great shape; you have to look at the name on the hull to tell them apart! They can cruise out to the reef at 13 knots, and make for a quick and stable dive platform.

For more info about this boat, see the floorplan.
