Freedom IV

Freedom IV is a new aluminium power cat with a good cruising speed and a long range with very comfortable luxury living quarters.

She is stable with a wide beam, a large working cockpit, three large dive platforms low to the water, ideally suited for film and dive work.

Two gensets and inverter cover all power requirements. A 6 cu ft scuba compressor covers dive operations.

Navigation equipment is the latest start of the art.

Her skipper Ben Cropp, is highly experienced. He has dived the Great Barrier Reef for 55 years and knows the Australian Coast and off shore waters better than most. Also his 50 years as a marine cameraman, film producer and explorer means he knows all the best locations around Australia to film and dive.
