Dive Support Boat 8.50

New applications on a well proven hull

he Dive Support Boat 8.50 is a dedicated support vessel for commercial diving operations. The boat is based on the proven design of our Fast Survey Boat 8.50. The interior length was shortened to create extra deck space for divers and their gear. The vessel is designed for inshore or coastal operations.

The unique feature on the DSB 8.50 is the choice for 2 cabin/deck versions:

  • The Long Cabin provides a generous roof cover and very good side shelter for people working on deck. It has good deck access from the water via 2  doors at the transom. A davit can support a diver entering the deck.
  • The Short Cabin features a good deck cover and an optional full canvas screen to protect the deck. It has a diving hatch with ladder to port for deck access. This version can also have the optional davit to support a diver entering the deck.
