Our Services

Cargo Transport

  • Large Open Deck Space

Our vessel provides a large open deck space for bulky cargo that needs to be transported by sea. With 50t of cargo capacity and able to self load & unload, the vessel is well suited for large loads or bespoke deliveries.

Beach Access

  • 50ft Cargo Capacity

When you need access to remote coastal locations and have no means of land access, the KMS Terramare is the ideal solution to deliver heavy machinery and equipment along with large / bulky materials for construction and civil infrastructure projects.

Specialist Operations

  • Vessel Crane

With a large open deck space, the vessel is the perfect platform when you require specialist requirements at sea. Utilising the vessel crane, the KMS Terramare is able to provide launch and recovery services for UAV’s and also survey equipment along with a large area for camera & film projects.

Crew & Stores Transfer

  • Capable of up to 10 pax and 15t of cargo

Our new multipurpose crew vessel, KMS Valonia, provides a fast option to transfer crew and cargo to larger vessels offshore. Capable of carrying up to 10 pax and 15t of cargo, the vessel can save costs by minimising the need for multiple vessels who are only suited to a specific need.

Dive & Survey Ops

  • Command and Control Ops Space

The KMS Valonia provides an ideal platform for dive & survey ops. Her large open aft deck provides plenty of workspace for your working equipment and by using the deck crane and stern gate makes access to launch / recover easier. Internal space for command and control ops is also available at deck level.

Film & Media

  • Safe Platform For Media Ops

With her large open deck, the KMS Valonia is configurable to be used as a safe platform for media ops. Being able to carry up to 10 pax, crew can be accommodated all day to support strict film schedules and enabling less vessel time. Her fast speed, means she can transit quicker to areas that are not serviced by a nearby port.

We own the 26m multipurpose landing craft, KMS Terramare, and the 20m fast workboat KMS Valonia, which are both well known within the UK workboat industry for being a very capable vessels and suitable for many different marine projects. In January 2024, an additional landing craft was purchased and will join the operational fleet in February.
