The industry standard in safety boat hire


North East Safety Boats hire safetyboats / workboats with fully qualified crew. Boats are available on both short and long term hire. We have vessels available for a variety of services and here at NESB we pride ourselves on being versatile to suit everybodys needs.

Directors Gareth and John Southcott not only see NESB as their business but their passion with both having extensive experience and knowledge in all things maritime.

It was while working in the local marine industry that they saw a need for the correct back up for people working on or near to water, and that a comprehensive service could be supplied by a North east firm, with the right expertise.

Since the Company was formed there has been a great demand, not only for Safety boat support but also for work alongside other firms providing support for crew transfers, and inspection work. This in turn has led to the purchase of more vessels to meet the client’s requirements, and all our boats are maintained to the highest specification, with compliance to MCA coding paramount.

If you cannot seem to find what you are looking for be sure to contact us and we will do our very best to accomodate your needs.
