What Can Safety Boats Be Used For?

If you need to errect or dismantle scaffolding, require rope access, access for demolition of structures, refurbishment or maintenance projects or new construction work, a work boat is the perfect solution to help you get (or sail!) from A to B and get the job done.

Once your floating pontoon is installed, we can provide a range of boats for safety boat cover, maintenance or access if required.
We’ll happily recommend the right boat for your project, pontoon installation and type of waterway.
