Channel Swim Vessel - Royal Charlotte

The Royal Charlotte and Skipper Mick Coker escorted Chloe across on the inaugural Half Channel Swim in September 2023. 

Boat Specifications: The Royal Charlotte is purpose built for charter angling and safety boat, designed and skippered by Mick Coker, the vessel is 38ft long(11m), 14ft beam and weighs 19 tons, and being deep draft means she drifts square with the tide making fishing very pleasant.

Facilities: On board toilet, spray covers and clean water.
The vessel has been hired for safety boat duties in the past. It has an in-date Safety Management System in place and is an approved safety boat for Dover Harbour. They have also completed recent survey contracts for Eurotunnel using multi-beam sonar and tow fish units, the vessel is very manoeuvrable and can run at low speeds maintaining a steady course.

Channel Swim Vessel - Channel Queen #2
New vessel will be announced soon for the 2024 Swim Season! 


These Half Channel Swims must always start in the middle of the Channel and head back to England. At no time will the swimmer/s or vessel/s enter French waters. You can't sign up for a FULL English Channel swim with these vessels. 

*This is a guide time only. Your actual time will depend on your swim pace and the conditions.
