Alicat Workboats & South Boats IOW returning again to Seawork
Alicat Workboats and sister company, South Boats IOW will both be exhibiting at Seawork 2017. Bringing with them an array of established products and vessels, ready to showcase to the Seawork audience.
Well known for their aluminum and GRP catamarans that are used extensively throughout the offshore workboat sector, South Boats IOW and Alicat Workboats are both specialist providers of bespoke marine & engineering services.
The companies have vessel construction and maintenance facilities in both Cowes, Isle of Wight (South Coast UK) and Great Yarmouth, Norfolk (East Coast UK).
Alicat Workboats have enjoyed recent successes including;
Following a partnership formed at Seawork Internation last year, Alicat secured a contract with a partially public-funded organisation to supply a purpose designed dive support vessel. A challenging project with budget and timeline constraints of just 12 weeks induced a decision to refit an existing vessel. The project encompassed Alicat’s wide range of services including design, contract management, build, boat delivery and supply chain management.
Following a Carbon Trust Back Fender Development, an Alicat VGRIP™ fender is now fitted to two UK based Crew Transfer vessels. With both operators concluding that the VGRIP™ fender provides a significantly improved tower performance than the equivalent vessel operating without the specialised fender. TheVGRIP™ Fender will be on display at the Carbon Trust stand PB19.
Over the last 12 months, South Boats IOW have diversified and are now making tracks into the military, defence and security sector, already completing refit works for three government agencies. The range of craft include a 12m-14m Interceptors as well as a 12m-19m Patrol Craft, both of which were refitted under cover with painting, engineering and outfit works.
Both companies will be in attendance to the 2017 exhibition, therefore make sure you meet the team on stand PG87, and berths VB24 and VB25
