Contract hire workboats, barges, tugs. Waterways Maintenance Services

Contact listings of companies who offer workboats, narrowboats, barges & tugs plus waterways construction and maintenance services.
The use of water based transport, including for non-waterway construction projects, is becoming increasingly popular since it avoids putting extra traffic on overburdened roads and one wide barge or pair of narrowboats can move larger loads more efficiently than a series of road vehicles.


  • Canal workboats are available for contract hire with or without operators. Craft include self powered or dumb narrowboats and barges, pontoons, tugs and dredgers. Uses include waterside and waterways construction and maintenance, dredging and moving heavy loads.
  • Associated ancilliary plant such as excavators and piling cranes can also be hired. Safety boats and welfare units are available for waterside construction projects.
  • Some companies now offer waterway and marina management, construction & maintenance services & equipment.
