PDL Marine adds new range of punts to the portfolio

After many requests, PDL Marine are pleased to add a new range of smaller workboat vessels in the format of punts. The vessels range from 4m to 8m and have a variety of uses, from workboat maintenance operations to supporting rowing clubs as well as dive operations. 

The vessels are all aluminium and road trailerable and are excellent for operating in shallow waters. For more information, please contact a member of the team at PDL Marine. 


PDL Marine completes significant refits.

PDL Marine are pleased to announce the completion of some vessels bought in for intensive refit. The vessels range from Survey Vessels requiring major works, including engine refit, wiring and re-certifying to some crew vessels used for a majority of works including filming on the river Thames.  

For more information regarding how PDL Marine can offer minor or major refits, please contact the team. 


LC800 Launched and tested

PDL Marine launch a second landing craft for the River Thames and Livetts launches.

PDL Marine are proud to launch and complete the trials for the LC800. An excellent vessel, twin OXE150 diesel outboards pushing the boat to 30 knots, the turning circle is awesome. This will be our second Landing craft operating on the river Thames and IMO Tier III Compliant.

Rather than us talking the boat up, this is what the new owner @livettsgroup had to say:
“Your attention to detail and fit out is very good and i am extremely pleased with the finished product. She will join the stables of Bravo Lima and together make an excellent pair of professionally built, well thought out and very durable craft. “

For more information on our wide range of landing craft and workboats, drop us a line to discuss.

A big thank you to Chris and the team at Livett's for the opportunity and we are sure your crew will appreciate the cabin cometh the winter!

Press release: 15m Amphibian

While the 12m is an amazing vessel, (available with most engine choices including outboards), we were receiving requests for a bigger craft that could carry significantly larger loads and of course a vessel for larger commercial projects says Philip Lovegrove, managing director of PDL Marine limited.

The 15m Amphibian certainly does that. The larger vessel can carry loads up to 11 tons on deck when in the standard mode but can also carry 7 tons when in ‘wheeled’ mode, this includes carrying up to 12 personnel and 2 crew, a Hiab and winch. The vessel also has a welfare / large aft cabin area with a toilet and galley with a raised wheelhouse so the helm can see over containers should they be on deck. A well thought out design with the retractable wheels, allowing the vessel to go most places a standard landing craft cannot.

Ideal for operating in shallow or drying out areas where access is limited due to tidal constraints.

The newer model can also be certified to MCA category 2 for operations up to 60 miles from a safe haven, so it is a ‘go anywhere’ type of vessel and has the option to change the wheelhouse layout to suit specific requirements.

The Amphibian can be fitted with a wide array of engine choices, whether it be petrol or Diesel outboards, IMO tier III inboard engines and can sustain speeds up to 28 /30 knots.

A fantastic vessel indeed. For more information, please drop a line to PDL Marine ltd on +44(0)2394 004832 or email sales@pdlmarine.com
