    Valkyrie & Valhalla

    Well, both of these are us

    We are based in Orkney & Shetland running the MV Valkyrie, a 22m ex-fishing boat with excellent sea handling and exceptional stability. We run week long trips for up to 12 divers based in either Scapa Flow, the northern isles of Orkney or in Shetland. We run from the start of April to the middle of November each year.

    6 cabins all with their own heating
    Hot and cold water & sink in each cabin
    Charging points in each cabin.
    Two showers
    Two proper toilets (not marine heads)
    A separate lounge (refitted 2012) and galley area
    Tumble dryer
    Beer fridge
    Big TV and DVD player
    Two compressors
    Booster
    Camera dunk tank
    All linen provided inc. small towel
    Comprehensive resuscitation kits inc. defibrillator
    Diver lift
    Nitrox, Trimix & lime available
    Twinsets, stages, 15's, 12's, ponies for hire
    Full board - breakfast, lunch & 3 course evening meal. Special diets catered for.

    We have three crew plus a small dog, providing excellent skippering (is that a word?), deckhanding, gas blending, feeding you until you want to burst & licked faces (we leave this bit to the dog). We pride ourselves on our level of customer service, with a crew member aboard 24hrs a day any problems can be sorted as soon as they occur.

    We go the extra mile to make sure you have an enjoyable stay with us, the Valkyrie team is a lot more than just a diveboat.













    The MV Valhalla is an ongoing project, a Loyal Class Fleet Tender she is 24m long and simply huge. *A totally blank canvas at the moment, her refit will take the next few years. *Watch this space for developments!

    Valhalla

    Valkyrie & Valhalla

    I'm no expert, but I suspect she wasn't the VIGILANT...

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMS_Vigilant_(S30)

    Not many guns there either.

    You both run a superb boat, I would come this year but I'm on a diet. xx

    Loyal class / cartmel class fleet Tender - Page 2 - Ships Nostalgia

    "Loyal Governor became the Alert then the RMAS MEAVY, before coming SULTAN VENTURER.

    Loyal Factor became Vigilant then RMAS LYDFORD.

    Check under those names to see if they come up with pictures in RMAS colours.

    Regards Tony."

    So maybe not HMS Vigilant...

    The 79' Fleet Tenders of the Royal Navy

    "The Loyals were built in the late seventies as training vessels. They have interior hatches down into the holds, which have living quarters. Externally, they are very similar to the Clovellys.
    Name Pennant Number Comm Builder Disposition
    Loyal Chancellor A1770
    Loyal Factor ex Vigilant A382
    Loyal Helper A157 1977
    Loyal Mediator A161
    Loyal Moderator A220
    Loyal Proctor A1771
    Loyal Supporter A158 1978 Dunston
    Loyal Volunteer A160
    Loyal Watcher A159 Dunston
    Loyal Factor was Sultan Venturer from 1992-?
    Loyal Governor (A510), became Alert (A510) and then Lydford (A251)."
