The Boats>MV Valkyrie
The MV Valkyrie was built as the MFV Honeydew, fishing number FR399, by Rory Forbes of Sandhaven in 1967. On our annual refit she is always recognised in her old home port of Fraserburgh with many men having served aboard her. She was renamed the Bounteous Sea and carried on fishing in the North Sea until the late nineties when she was sold to Ireland. Eventually decommissioned and returned home, she was converted for diving in 2003.
She is a go anywhere, capable and comfortable liveaboard, with a reputation for great hospitality as well as serious diving. Her stability gives her great performance as a diving platform.
