Fleet » Survey vessel

In addition to our purpose-built workboats, our survey boat, the M.V. Katie Louise is a highly-specified catamaran, custom-built for the company in 2006.

Already audited by Centrica, she is currently being used to conduct sound-surveys on the North Norfolk coast.

With a length of 12m and 5.2m beam she is an extremely stable vessel offering speed, agility and economy yet with all the facilities you’re likely to need. Centrally-heated and with a fully-equipped kitchen, the boat provides a safe and comfortable working environment for up to ten personnel.
