Meercat Boats, renowned as UK’s leading builder of Multirole Steel Workboats, will launch its new multirole vessel (MRV) line-up at Seawork International in June.

The new range will reflect Meercat Boats’ enhanced designs, which are a natural evolution of the vessels which have been built over the past ten years and which have been created in conjunction with Walker Marine Design, headquartered in Southampton (UK).

John Buck, Meercat Boats’ Business Manager comments, “The Meercat name has been long regarded as synonymous with versatility, therefore the new multirole vessel (MRV) line-up is a continuation of this unique offering combined with the superb build quality for which Meercats are renown. This versatility, combined with strong residuals, makes a Meercat extremely desirable. One of our clients recently quipped that nothing compares to a Meercat.”

Vessels currently in build includes the 15 metre Meercat MRV15, which is destined for Guernsey Harbours, and valued at £1milllion.
