Meercat Workboats has this month moved from Portchester to new, purpose built premises in Hythe Marine Park, Southampton. To coincide with this, two new vessels have been delivered and one new order confirmed.

The new site is 1,600 sqm, has two 20-tonne gantry cranes, a machine shop, an electrical workshop, a hydraulic workshop, aluminum welding bays, steel fabrication bays, dedicated stores, offices and customer parking.

Late in September, Meercat Workboats delivered two new build vessels; MC26 into the Aquaculture sector and MC28 to a Marine Civils Contractor. The company has relocated in time to conclude two further builds – MC27 (a 14m workboat) and MC29 (a 15m workboat).

The team are also pursuing prospects for house boats, pontoons and barges for both the domestic and international markets.
