About the boat
Wetwheels Yorkshire is a 9 metre catamaran made by Cheetah Marine on the Isle of Wight. Construction is currently underway for delivery in time for the 2018 season at Whitby, North Yorkshire.
She follows a proven design pioneered by Wetwheels Solent (which her debut in September 2011 at the PSP Shouthampton Boat Show when she was named by Lord Lieutenant of Hampshire, Dame Mary Fagan DCVO).
Wetwheels Yorkshire is powered by twin Suzuki 300 HP outboard engines capable of driving her at 40 knots.
She is equipped with the latest, state-of-the-art marine electronics provided by Raymarine. These include radar, chartplotter, VHF, auto-pilot and even joystick steering.
Access will be via twin side-opening doors and ramp onto her large open deck. She will be MCA coded (category 2) to take up to 10 passengers up to 60 miles offshore. We have designed 3 wheelchair tie-down positions on the deck for maximum safety.
We are equipped with the latest safety equipment including a 12 person liferaft, lifejackets and flares.
Our skippers are all commercially endorsed and we are fully insured. We will also have a detailed safety policy and a full set of risk-assessments available on request.
