  • Dredging operations
  • River bank repair
  • Marina installation
  • Pile driving
  • Lock gate repair

Vessel Charter

We operate a fleet of road transportable workboats ideal for inland waterways projects including canals, rivers and lakes. All vessels can be provided on a crewed or bareboat basis.

These vessels can also be used at sea, and their ease of transportation enables delivery with minimal delay, regardless of poor weather conditions. Our quayside cranes and road transport division enable the prompt mobilisation of equipment to challenging locations.
