Our fleet


We have created the ultimate no-compromise workboat, specifically designed to serve the demands of the North Sea wind energy industry.

  • These boats have been developed to out-perform other vessels, especially in our short, steep seas.
  • With a cruising speed of 25 knots (fully laden) in most weather, they are almost unstoppable and work safely in seas of up to 2.5m.
  • The large fore and aft cargo decks are equipped with cranes for loading and unloading.
  • Modern, comfortable accommodation is provided for up to twelve passengers.

We are often seeking new crew and skippers to work aboard our vessels.

During this time I became interested in navigation and theory, which I found I was good at. This encouraged me to start training for my RYA Yachtmaster qualification, involving practical and theory courses with examinations to be passed, which I gained in my second year at sea."
