Club boat

We regularly dive across the United Kingdom from our RIB, the Mike Maloney.



Named after Mike Maloney, one of the first members to join Holborn in 1961, our boat spans 6.5 metres with a 175 horsepower engine. It can accommodate up to 8 divers.

During the UK diving season, we generally keep the boat at Portland Harbour and dive along the South Coast of England.
