About This Boat


MAX CAPACITY: 6 passengers plus crew. 

The one and only!  This is our flagship, built by Rayglass Protector Boats and customized by none other than Mr. Pablo Sanchez over at Protector USA in Richmond.  It is about 30 feet long by 10 feet wide, powered by EPA rated Ultra Low Emissions 4 stroke twin Yamaha 150HP, it weighs in at about 7,000 lbs as equipped (no passengers). It can sleep 1 below deck, has very comfortable seats.  Cruises at 32 mph with a wide open throttle max speed of 40 mph.  

 For those who don't know, this is one of the most seaworthy boats ever made.  If comfort and above all safety is important, then you have chosen the right watercraft.  Originally designed for the New Zealand Coast Guard and other law enforcement and military groups, this watercraft is virtually unsinkable and shines in heavy seas. Private and government special intervention agencies throughout the world rely heavily upon RHIB boats to conduct both tactical and rescue operations in gale force storms. Protector is used by America's Cup officials and teams and is the official supplier to Emirates Team New Zealand.

This boat will take you there and back. Safely!  Your only obligation is to relax and enjoy the trip.

CAPTAIN SERVICES ARE INCLUDED IN PRICE! Please NOTE: We cannot rent this boat out without a captain because the insurance companies we have tried so far do not offer this type of coverage anymore.  Thank you for your understanding.

Danny was absolutely amazing, could not have been any better. The boat is very comfortable and agile, was able to cover a lot of ground and was very fun. Danny was incredibly thoughtful about the whole experience. He had a great itinerary but was also flexible in allowing us to adjust on the fly based on our interests. He even brought us some homemade food and wine, which was all delicious. Could not recommend more highly for anyone looking to explore the bay area by water.

Capt. Doxan is amazing! Very great to work with him from planning to execution. Capt. Doxan was ready in SF at the dock and zipped across the Bay. We were completely pleased with the swift journey from SF to the East Bay and will definitely book this trip again. Thank you Capt. Doxan - a pleasure to travel the open seas with you!
