The Multicat is our 15m workboat with a robust crane mounted on the deck.

The Multicat has proven to be a client favourite due to its relatively compact size and crane capacity. Fitted with a Terex Atlas A5 it is capable of lifting 1.5 tonne at 12 m, making it ideal for locations that require robust operations to be carried out in areas that offer very little area for manoeuvring. The Multicat is skippered by Victor Herschy who brings with him an abundance of experience and knowledge that ensures the safest and most practical solutions during operations.
