Our boat...

Sleek, comfortable and ready to take on the toughest conditions…

Designed for the extremes of Antarctic seas, the wild African coast and the Pacific, Selkie combines strength, stability, comfort and speed. The west coast of Scotland is a tough place for a boat but Selkie is more than up to it.

Selkie’s lifting keel means we can access hidden, shallow bays and negotiate tricky passages from which other boats steer well away. The wide beam allows for a large, comfortable deck and greater steadiness in rough seas.

Inside, Selkie’s salon features panoramic windows for all round views and a large table that seats lots of folk, so it’s ideal for creative projects or simply as a setting for a good meal. Selkie sleeps a maximum of nine people, including crew, in two double berths and five single berths. There is a large galley for cooking, a bathroom with sink, wc and shower, and a workshop.
