About Romulus

Romulus and sister vessel Remus were acquired by Livett’s in June 2023, adding even more versatility to our diverse range of specialist craft and barges.

A fixture of the Canary Wharf and West India Docks landscapes since the late 1980s, Romulus and Remus have most often been deployed as floating offices for various developments.

Both barges are currently set up as open plan offices with space for up to 32 desks per deck. However, their extremely flexible layouts mean they can be reconfigured for a wide range of requirements. This includes living accommodation, social activities, PR events, or being cleared for use as a flat top pontoon.

Romulus and Remus can also be used as highly effective floating marine unit bases for all types of marine filming projects. This further complements Livett’s turnkey River Thames filming and marine film services, providing production crews with everything they need to successfully film on water.

Both Romulus and Remus are available for rent or purchase. Viewings of the barges are available, strictly by appointment only.
