Torridge owns the steel 35' Pilot Boat Two Rivers II. She is a 35' David Abels purpose designed and built Pilot boat with a single screw, and capable of 9 knots. She is well suited to the often harsh conditions at the entrance to the Taw and Torridge rivers, being very sea kindly.

A replacement Ford Sabre engine and gearbox were fitted by TDC Operational Services Staff and she was re-launched by the Harbour's own Fuchs crane.PilotFrem
