Bravo Lima GB


About Bravo Lima GB

After arriving in November 2021, Bravo Lima GB became the first purpose-built commercial landing craft on the River Thames.

Bravo Lima GB’s versatile design means it can pick up goods and passengers from miles of Thames foreshore, slipways, stairs and beaches. This means users are no longer restricted to being reliant on traditional piers, which can be expensive, congested and inconveniently located.

Designed with the environment in mind, Bravo Lima GB will use HVO fuel which is made from 100% renewable raw materials, reducing CO2 greenhouse gas emissions by as much as 90%.

She is an ideal platform for a wide range of River Thames filming requirements, complementing our already extensive fleet of camera boats, safety boats and workboats. Features including an ultra low draft and opening bow door also make the craft an excellent base for all river wall or foreshore surveys.

Bravo Lima GB is also road transportable and coded for use on all UK waterways.
