What our customers are saying

"During all four export cables which were floated to shore, Commercial Rib Charter remained versatile and professional to ensure a safe and timely execution. The vessels supplied by your company were always of a very high standard and never failed to meet our client's expectations and audit requirements. The same can also be said of the personnel involved with CRC, who always acted safely and were willing to go above and beyond their duties to assist."

VBMS

"We would like to congratulate you on your excellent management of the detail and complexity during the extensive preparations leading up to the Games and your flawless delivery during the 2012 Games themselves.

Keeping so many boats on full operational duty, many with 24 hour availability with a near 100% service level, is a full testament to every aspect of your operation. Well done indeed."
