Boat Trips For Wildlife Watching, Sea Angling
"Tak Hunter" is a modern, 8m motor launch built by NB Marine, Norway. In Shetland the word "Tak" means "bite of a fish."
The vessel has a toilet, galley (hot drinks provided) and inside seating for 5 with seven large windows to give good all round visibility. Binoculars are carried on board. There is a large open area aft which can be used to view or to fish. The 100hp Volvo engine has a maximum speed of 15 knots but cruises at 10 knots to enjoy the experience.
The vessel is licensed and equipped, including a 6 man life raft, to Marine and Coastguard Agency Category 3 standards operating up to 20 miles from shore. It is fitted with an integrated GPS / radar/ echo sounder / chart plotter display unit with any combination thereof. Radio communication is by twin VHF, DSC transceivers.
The area cruised has good mobile phone coverage and there is a 240v AC supply to recharge any flat batteries.
