Crew Transfer Vessels
We operate a range of Crew transfer vessels suitable for operation on the Thames. Our largest CTV ‘Galaxy’ is 15m and coded to MCA Cat 1 allowing operation day or night up to 150nm from a safe haven. ‘Galaxy’ is fitted out with 12 air suspension passenger seats, heads with shower and a galley. ‘Galaxy’ has a large aft deck, and a foredeck with door access from the passenger accommodation with steps up to a bow snubber boarding platform.
Both ‘Galaxy’ and our 12m Delta Cabin Rib ‘Tempest’ are twin Hamilton Jet drive giving them a great shallow water capability. ‘Galaxy draws’ only .8m. Where low air draft is required, most of our 7.8m and 8.8m boats are coded to carry 11 passengers and have an air draft of only 1.6m.
All of our vessels are coded to the highest permissible level by the Maritime Coastguard Agency (MCA) and in addition wherever it is necessary, our boats are also surveyed and coded by the Port of London Authority. We are a fully ISO 9001 compliant company and our boats are all subject to a sophisticated Planned Maintenance System ensuring equipment is date compliant and correctly serviced.
