The Boat

Tortuga Charter BoatTortuga is a 33′ Custom Dive boat built on an Egg Harbor hull, constructed by Lewis Boatworks here on the coast of North Carolina.

With a 12′ beam, she is both roomy and stable at rest. Tortuga is rigged to carry a maximum of 6 divers and their gear. The 8.1 liter John Deere Diesel engine pushes her along at a comfortable 19 knots, while making the most of every gallon of fuel. 60% of her deck space is under the large top, with a 3 sided plastic enclosure that keeps our customers out of the sun, wind and spray.

We are especially proud of our custom dive platform and “fins on” ladder with sturdy handles to make the transition from the water with gear to in the boat as easy and safe as possible.

Should a little sunshine be on your agenda, feel free to stretch out in the roomy cockpit. When at anchor, you can relax in the sun on the forward bow deck. Forward of the helm is a small galley. There is a v-berth and upper bunk that sleeps 3 for a nap on the ride home. A head (called a toilet by landlubbers) is below as well with room to stand up to change out of your wetsuit in privacy.

Electronics and Safety Gear

For your cruising pleasure, Tortuga has two comfortable marine bean bags from E-Searider.
