The dive boat “Downunder” was adopted by our dive family in 2002. Since its arrival from Gibraltar, it underwent a transformation from a deep sea fishing boat/pleasure yacht into a top of the line dive and charter boat. A full fly bridge was added and the upper deck extended to accommodate a 5m long Mercury inflatable; an electrical winch allows for the inflatable to be launched in minutes, should the need arise. The upper deck also holds 2 diesel powered dive compressors in case tanks need to be filled “on the go”. “Downunder” is also fitted with a comfortable dive platform and easy diver access at the stern and operates on completely overhauled electrical and navigational systems. In 2009, a new PVC deck surface was installed.
With its spacious decks, 3 cabins, full kitchen, “boat to diver” communication system, and comfortable salon fitted with an interactive center, “Downunder” has proven itself to be a good dive work-horse, exploration vessel, charter boat, and classroom, as well as a warm home to some of our staff. It is by far the best outfitted and most comfortable dive boat in Montenegro today.
