ProCharter P3

Most of our fittings such as doors, dashboard, locker boxes, engine boxes, seating are made in moulds and fully bonded or nut and bolted. There is no wood deck to look after and very little to maintain. See (3 above). You even use your deck wash to clean out your wheelhouse and front cabin. Our stainless steel is marine grade 316 or above. There is no compromise on quality!

The ProCharter P3. From 25ft (7.6m) to 35ft (10.6m) and every length in between.

One day all boats will be built like this! Not just ours.

The P3 is built to the customers specifiFc requirements. As a ferry the P3 is capable of seating over 40 passengers. As a tripping / sightseeing boat at just 28ft (8.53m) the P3 can seat 3 crew in the wheelhouse with seating outside for 12 passengers.

The P3 is available with the Camargue (extra wide) wheelhouse.

A major cruise line company specializing in Arctic cruises has asked us to design and build 8 glass bottom boats to go on their cruise ships and excursions whilst at sea. These boats are 27ft (8.23m) in length, can seat 18 passengers inside the wheelhouse around a vast glass viewing area. Our quote for these twin engine boats will be around 80,000 per vessel.

We can custom build your total boat. We can increase or decrease all dimensions of our wheelhouse, hull and gunwale (height, length, width, etc). We have in the past built boats from the ProCharter range for many different and diverse operations, such as, ambulance boat, floating office. Boats with glass viewing areas in the hull for survey and scientific research. Boats for hauling creel pots and nets, fish farms, a service boat for the Sport Scotland Yacht Club, and many private customers who want something special from a stable work boat. A number of boats have been built for commercial use in Ireland, Holland, Spain, Gibraltar, Portugal and Greece. Due to Greece being the other side of Europe to us and ideally suited to supply boats to the Mediterranean and Southern Europe we now have agents in Athens www.procharter.gr and we expect to be manufacturing the ProCharter range in Greece for 2009. www.procharter.nl will be on-line spring/summer 2008. We have built high speed ferries which are working up to 60 miles (100km) off the West coast of Scotland and the Orkney Islands. We are currently building a 100 passenger Americana ferry for the UK. We are also designing a 60ft (18.3m) Americana for pleasure use. The boat will be kept on a mooring in the Thames and used as a house boat. The interesting part of this build is that the boat will be able to launch and recover a Sea Plane from the rear deck. So even if you think your dream boat is impossible to have, phone us before you give up.

When building a ProCharter for a customer, a 24 hour live stream Webcam is put on the boat. The customer can not only watch his boat being built, he can record it to DVD. Just like the Discovery Channel but without the sound. Although we would like anyone who visits our Website to be able to watch our build programs to boost our sales, only the customer can watch their Webcam, as it is password protected. We do this because to many people using the stream slows it down and this is not fair on the customer. As with all ProCharter boats the option of fitted water ballast tanks is available, weight her down when she needs it and still enjoy the low fuel cost of a light boat when you don't.

Whilst still in the mould, the hull is framed. Generally the frames are at 60cm intervals although this may vary due to the length of the craft. The size and spacing of frames will be to the regulations in paragraph 1.
