She is the first ‘smaller’ class 6 passenger vessel built since the implementation by the Department of the Marine of new safety regulations and requirements. She fully conforms to all the stringent constructional requirements of this class, including 6 watertight compartments, strong scantlings and a high level of stability. Her safety equipment comprises 3 liferafts with 100 percent redundancy on launching cradles, A.I.S. Radar transponder, Sailor DSSC Radio, Navtex Reciever, 3 hand held VHF radios, Float free ERIPB, See Me Active radar unit as well as the usual Radar, GPS plotter and fishfinder.

‘Toraigh Na Dtonn’ is powered by twin Caterpillar 3126 engines rated at 385hp and supplied by Mc Cormack Mc Naughton of Cork . Her performance is excellent achieving a maximum speed of 28.5kts on a 11,000kg displacement. The vessel displays the expected excellent sea keeping of the Interceptor 42 providing a soft ride into head seas and excellent handing down wind in following seas. One of her roles will be as a dive craft and to this end is fitted with a large stainless steel dive platform and deep dive ladder. The Interceptor 42’s wide 14ft beam makes her a very stable for diving as well as sea angling. The vessel features an extended cabin which provides comfortable seating and shelter and is finished to a very high standard featuring classy teak joinery and fully lined and carpeted surfaces. A transom door allows easy boarding and an aft cockpit accessed toilet adds to her accessibility.
