WHY HIRE SAFETY BOATS FROM LIVETT'S
Safety is the number one priority for all services that Livett’s Group offer. We have been providing safety boat services on the River Thames for over 35 years and as such we are appropriately placed to advise on the best practice when working on, near or over water.
All safety boats are licenced by the Port of London Authority to carry both goods and passengers and with the most suitable lifesaving appliances.
All our marine crew are trained to the latest STCW standards and attend regular first aid refresher courses, while having expert local knowledge and experience in providing safety boat work on the River Thames and Medway.
Our safety boats are shallow drafted with low airdrafts, making them incredibly suitable to work in and around bridge abutments. Whether supervising abseilers or working around scaffolding, we have the perfect safety boat solution.
From shallow drafted vessels to towage capability, our safety boats are extremely versatile and can work the length of the River Thames and Medway.
Livett’s have provided safety boats for the most complex, high-profile scenes ever filmed on the River Thames, from low-flying helicopters to high speed chases and everything in between.
