GUARANTEED RAIL SIDE POSITION
The most important feature of our Whale Watching Vessel is a safe 360 degree walk around deck so everyone is guaranteed a rail side position to get as close as possible. On the Kerra Lyn we guarantee everyone has a rail side position for that photo of a lifetime. Just imagine that whale only an arm’s length away as it swims down the side of the vessel watching everyone with their beautiful big eye. Plenty of room for our maximum of 50 including crew.
Due to the length, weight and draft of the Kerra Lyn, she is solid as a rock in the water, ensuring a comfortable ride.
The vessel has as the Dual redundancy of 2 engines, in case of break down you have another engine to rely on.
The vessel is also in AMSA Survey – Australian Marine Safety Survey – Passing the highest safety requirements for a charter vessel.
LOW NOISE DISTURBANCE
Both engine in the Kerra Lyn are mounted on specially designed rubber compound mounts to reduce noise and vibration through the hull. The engine room is lined with acoustic insulation making the vessel extremely quiet. Beneficial to our guests and the whales.
Clean and Green
KERRA LYN is powered by twin 200 HP Cummins and is the most economical/ low emission whale watching / charter vessel in South West.
Both engines run through a dry exhausts/ muffler system with the stacks on the roof of the vessel, which means it is nice and quiet (does not bother our whales or passengers) without any diesel fumes, again pleasant for our passengers.
Locally owned and operated.
