What a great vessel. Served onboard the Sentinel during my time as a Senior Maritime enforcement officer/3rd Engineer with the Customs Cutter service. The Sentinel is a 34m Island Class cutter operated by the UK Border Agency. Built by Vosper Thornycroft and launched in 1995 she has been designed to carry out a wide range of law enforcement duties. She is a modified version of an extremely successful Vosper Thornycroft design built under licence for the US Coastguard. SENTINEL is powered by two Caterpillar diesel engines, with a separately powered steerable water jet for slow speed propulsion.

And she's always nice to watch Simon, there is a much smaller Sentinel sailing on the local lake on a Sunday afternoon. Thank you for the information.
All the best, Andrew.

I designed her, with Pete Brown, Dave Wood and a few others. Great little ship

I know they are not designed to look good but these do look good, very pleasing looking boat.
