Boat Hire




NESB can hire safety boats and workboats for both short term and long-term hire. Our crew are not only suitably qualified, but they are also experienced in operating the various vessels we have sometimes in challenging environment and conditions. All our vessels are road transportable; we have vessels available for a variety of services and here at NESB we pride ourselves in being versatile to suit everybody’s needs.

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.
