9m Landing craft

PDL Marine were approached by a company in London to assist them with a vessel that could work in a multitude of tasks from filming, to carrying cargo, diving and also passengers. The vessel also had to be IMO Tier III complaint to fit in with  the MCA rules and regulations. 

Our solution: The 9m Multi-purpose landing craft with a pair of diesel outboards rated to 174hp (175hp is the point where the engines have to be tier III certified.) The engines were also set to run on  HVO fuel which is made from 100% renewable raw materials which in turn reduces the CO2 gas emissions by up to 90%. The vessel is also capable of operating at speeds of 30 knots. (Please use image in folder ‘case studies’ 

Needless to say the client was very happy with the product to the point that they ordered another boat, the LC850.

10m Power Cat

PDL were contracted to design and manufacture a custom designed leisure Powercat for a UK client.

This was a challenge as there were very little (if any) aluminium Powercats available for the leisure markets in the UK.

PDL took this to our NZ partner, Mr Roger Hill of RHYD, who has extensive experience in the design of aluminium Powercats, spanning 40 years.

The design was finalised and manufactured in house by our teams of fully skilled staff, complete with our approved subcontractors, to achieve a unique and very capable cross channel/offshore, cruise/fishing vessel, complete with a luxury interior.

Pontoon handling workboat

PDL were contacted by an international marine construction company to provide a solution for the marina refurbishment and construction aspect of their business.

After a consultation period and assessment of what standard designs were available, we found the perfect solution in one of our leisure range, the kingfisher minicat 450.

The standard design was adapted to incorporate a pusher bow assembly into the standard 450, calculated and designed by a local independent naval architect, and manufactured by our skilled workforce.

The boat fitted the brief perfectly, with the client very satisfied with the results.

There are more orders planned for 2020.

No Man's Land Fort

PDL were tasked with building and fitting a landing stage to the side of No Mans Fort in the Solent - a particularly complex project due to the strong tides within the Solent and also having been designated as a world heritage site and now a hotel venue meant the project had to be high quality, built efficiently and ready for the start of the season when paying guests would arrive.

All the metalwork had to be shipped out to site via Portsmouth Harbour on a workboat and the team had to work around the tide times and of course the typical British weather and also having to abseil down the side of the fort and work hanging from harnesses. However, the project was completed on time and signed off.
