Specialisation in Guard and Patrol Boats
Our guard and patrol boats are particularly well suited to working the danger zone around the cable laying operation. Our crew have experience in communications and redirecting both commercial and leisure traffic with courtesy and efficiency.
With crew transfer boats coded to category 1 giving an operating range of 150 miles from safe haven, our larger boats are able to carry up to 12 passengers in comfort and safety on suspension seats enabling efficient shift changes around the clock.
Not all sites require the expense of a large catamaran work boat; our cabin Ribs use less fuel, go faster in greater comfort and are significantly cheaper to operate than larger traditional equivalents.
Shore End Support
The shallow draft of our vessels makes them suitable for operating in coastal waters as well as offshore. We have experience of cable pull-in and general inshore assistance. Our fleet offers craft suitable for assisting cable shore end landings.
