The 95-foot long Searcher, built in 1970, is a US Coast Guard SOLAS (Safety of Life at Sea) and FCC (Federal Communications Commission) inspected and certified vessel. It carries two 475-horsepower Caterpillar diesel engines, two 60-kilowatt generators, and state-of-the-art electronics including GPS navigation and a satellite telephone.
Searcher has 14 air-conditioned cabins–12 are double-occupancy and three are triple-occupancy–each with fresh-water sink, AC US-style electrical outlets, reading lights and a mirror. Each cabin has sleeping bunks and gear storage.
There are four bathrooms (“heads”) on the main deck, two with showers and two located near the observation deck in the stern. There are wildlife observation decks on the stern and bow with chairs and on the upper deck in front of the wheelhouse.
Lounge/dining room with small library; wildlife observation decks on stern, upper deck and bow area; 3 aluminium skiffs.
Please note that getting off Searcher into smaller skiffs for whalewatching and excursions is via a ladder with three steps about 12 inches apart. Even in calm seas, this can be a challenge. It is very important that you are in good physical condition to be able to ascend/descend this ladder unassisted
