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.

Multicat-type vessels have large working decks and hydraulic knuckle boom cranes. They are divisible along their centre line to allow carriage on the majority of road networks in the UK and Europe.
