Ocean Scout & Offshore Scout together in NorwayDuring the years that Adventures Offshore has been operating, we have operated a variety of boats. Our current fleet consists of Ocean Scout and Offshore Scout; two near-identical, modern 49 foot Oyster ketches. They were purpose-built for us back in 1993 and 1997 respectively; each specifically designed and equipped with sail training in mind. Since their introduction, they have been lovingly maintained and upgraded, meaning that they are in as good condition today as they were all those years ago!

Our vessels are equipped and maintained to a very high standard, with all the required safety equipment to meet and exceed commercial regulations. Each can sail with up to 14 people on board - including 2 or 3 afterguard (instructors) and a maximum of 11 crew, although we normally take slightly smaller crews to provide a bit more space for everyone.

The boats were fitted out specifically with sail training in mind and are comfortable, seaworthy and practical. Sailing the boats is a team effort, and there is plenty on board to keep crew busy. You can get an idea of what the boats are like, inside and out, from the pictures below.
