Abyss is an 8 metre Blyth Work Cat and was acquired by the owner / skipper, Faz, in May 2010 after serving successfully as a dive boat in the North East of England for 5 years.

She is located at Plymouth Yacht Haven marina in Mount Batten, Plymstock, Devon.

Although fitted out for diving, she is also available for charter to sea fishing and other groups.

She is fully coded to MCA cat 3, which means she can operate up to 20 miles from safe haven, day or night, carrying a maximum number of 12 passengers and 2 crew. She carries a full compliment of safety gear: 14 man life raft, lifejackets, liferings with buoyant lights, flares and first aid equipment.
