Livett’s acquire office barges Romulus and Remus

romulus and remus

We are thrilled to announce two incredibly versatile additions to the ever growing Livett’s fleet: Romulus and Remus.

These identical barges have been a fixture in the Canary Wharf and West India Docks areas for over 25 years, most often being deployed as floating offices for various developments.

Livett’s have now taken complete ownership of the crafts, which are residing in King George V Dock before their next assignment.

Romulus and Remus – both of which can be adapted and made suitable for a wide range of requirements, including offices, floating unit bases for marine filming, living accommodation, social activities, PR events, or being cleared for use as a flat top pontoon – are available for immediate letting or sale.

Viewings of the barges are available, strictly by appointment only.
