We supply full-body survival suits which will keep you warm on a cooler day and serve as a life jacket for your safety and peace of mind. Just in case you are worried about personal safety, however, the Zodiac Medline III is officially certified by Zodiac as unsinkable. We of course have all the legally required safety equipment onboard.

The boat has been designed to be spacious and comfortable with fitted seating for seven guests and the helmsman. On board we also have a marine toilet in the privacy of the helm cabin. The boat is also fitted with a sink with running water, a swim platform with transom shower, an electric cool box, a sun bathing deck, and a Bimini cover to give some shade from the sun. There is even a single burner ring for a hot beverage if you want an alternative to a cold can. There is lots of under seat dry storage. Under the rear 3-person passenger bench seat a huge locker can also store everything from water skis to safety equipment.

Our boat is fitted with an ultra low carbon emission Suzuki high performance 250hp engine that will speed you to your destination at a very safe 50 mph | 80 kmph. More than enough power to help you enjoy those water sports for the more adventurous amongst you.

Put simply, we have not found any RIB in its class to match the Zodiac Medline III. It will turn most for providing you with an exciting day on the water in complete comfort and luxury.

Flagship of the line, the Medline III spares no effort to ensure your comfort: hydraulic steering, large sundecks fore and aft, cabin space sufficient for marine toilets, a built-in kitchenette (sink with running water, collapsible table, stove and electric cooler). The bolster provides great piloting comfort whether standing or sitting. Approved for 8 persons for the open ocean in the "Offshore Design Category B" of the ERCD, and 15 passengers for at sea but close to shore in the "Inshore Design Category C", the Medline III can challenge the open sea with long-range cruising capacity thanks to its 2 fuel tanks totalling 345 litres (91 US gal).

A superb stay in an outstanding location - topped by a fantastic day with Dieter looking for - and finding the local wildflife, bald eagles, turkey vultures, porpoise, seals, sea lions and the highlight 2 orca killer whales. All in the most stunning scenery. Its been wonderful to stay here for four nights on our road trip around the west coasts of Canada and America - celebrating our silver wedding anniversary. We’ve also enjoyed the chance to sit and watch the birds - the birding scope is a great idea. Thanks for a wonderful stay in a fabulous place - we hope to return.
