Inland Waterways

Keel Marine's team of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers have an extensive knowledge of Inland Waterways Vessels that has been developed over 50 years of direct involvement with Operators. Craft have been designed for all types of Inland Waterways including Rivers, Canals and Lakes, both in the United Kingdom and Globally.

Our experience in this field enables us to meet all our clients' requirements, be it designs, conversions, stability assessments or survey work for these unique craft. Keel Marine has formed successful joint partnerships with inland waterways operators to produce full feasibility studies and concept designs for imaginative and unique concept vessels. Clients have included the major UK operators as well as owners of single vessels.

Combined with this knowledge, our Specialisation in Floating Plant provides the link to Civil Marine Construction Contractors with projects including Special Lifting Applications, Piling, Access and Construction Works.
