The RESTCo Multi-functional Shallow Water Skimmer Workboat

We see the SWS work boat as filling a lot of roles, but perhaps it still isn't working full-time in your specific situation. We think the purpose of a work boat is to work, not sit tied up to a dock waiting for a very specific and rare event (e.g. an oil-spill).

With the high-volume pump able to self-prime and pull over 15 metres of head, this vessel can take pumping capability to areas which can't be reached from shore. This could be used to pump out boat and ship bilges or waste tanks for vessels which can't come into a slip in a marina or small harbour.

With its cargo hoist and a moon pool, the boat can support divers and light salvage / underwater construction activity.


Your Voice - What Else Do You Need a Small Boat to Do?

As of June 2019, RESTCo is seeking a partner to help refine our design, support building and fitting out our first full-size prototype(s), and evaluate them in real-world conditions. If that's of interest to you, let us know.
