The NEMO is an Evolution 38, purpose built in Cornwall by Evolution Boats, Roche. It's modern design represents the best stability and safety that boats have to offer these days.
It was built in 2018 and is new to St Ives for 2021. We have repowered it with two brand new Mercury 150s and installed all new top of the range navigation equipment for added safety and peace of mind.
With eight glass viewing panels, the NEMO is one of the largest glass bottom vessels in the UK. Paired with advanced underwater lighting, we aim to provide the best experience possible from all angles.
The new petrol outboard engines are not only cleaner but significantly quieter than their diesel counterparts, allowing a more enjoyable boat trip.
