Survey Boats

As part of major infrastructure projects or property developments that are waterside there is often a need to survey inland waterways and structures such as canal walls, bridges, foundations etc.


We have a range of small motor boats that are ideally suited to survey work due to their small size, manoeuvrability and flexibility to support a range of different survey operations. Our small motor workboats can accommodate dive teams and their equipment and are also stable enough to support a 3m high access tower for engineers and surveyors to inspect the underside of bridges and walls.
We operate a number of workflats which are 11m long & 2.13m wide. Some have small cabins to provide welfare facilities & storage. These craft are useful for dive teams as they are stable, spacious and low in the side providing easy access in and out of the water. They are stable enough to support access towers and are convenient for survey work on canal walls, bridges etc. They can be fitted with handrails all round to comply with health and safety requirements.

We also have a range of tidal river and coastal motor workboats and dinghies available for working on tidal rivers and around the coast. The small motor workboats are approx 7- 8m long and 3m wide and about 1m deep. A forward wheelhouse provides a large open deck space aft with handrails. The open aft deck is convenient for dive teams and their equipment as well as providing a good working platform for surveyors to work from.
