Diverse Marine celebrates first year

Happy first anniversary to Diverse Marine - it's 12 months today (1July) since the directors acquired the assets and equipment of their former employer South Boats IOW thereby securing the employment of 20 staff on site and the immediate future of the business.

Ben Colman, Director said: “We have been truly humbled by the support we have received from our staff, clients and suppliers and are proud to work with each and every one of them. Twelve months ago, we started with some equipment, a loyal team, a very modest business plan but with our ethos of delivering high quality, cost effective refits and repairs to clients that valued an integrated approach to complete each project. Our staff, clients and suppliers are all part of the Diverse Marine family”.

The company states it has achieved a multi-million-pound turnover and has secured the immediate future of the business through long term work commitments.  Deliveries of note include a new harbour patrol vessel for Cowes Harbour Commission and successful refit projects for Aspect Land & Hydrographic Surveys, Commercial RIB Charters, Faversham Ships, PAG Group/Ambrey, the RNLI, Seacat Services, Turner Iceni and UK Border Force.

The company also attracted the attention of Bremerton USA-based SAFE Boats International resulting in a formal agreement to support SAFE in the UK and a SAFE 35 Multi-Mission Interceptor demonstration vessel at the yard.

Diverse Marine works closely with island business Aluminium Marine Consultants (AMC), also now based at Medina Yard, which delivers the aluminium fabrication and hot works for most of the company’s projects. This approach enables both companies to keep their overheads down, ensuring competitive pricing and the ability to produce both bespoke and production builds to an international market. Further new build contracts including a 10m Aluminium Survey Catamaran, a further 9m Aluminium RIB and most notably a 24m Wind Farm Crew Transfer Vessel for Seacat Services on the Isle of Wight

Diverse Marine also supports many operators with maintenance and repairs including Solent & Wightline Cruises, Mareel/TurbineTransfers, Seaward, Newhaven Port Authority, Hampshire Police, NR Marine Services, Williams Shipping, Landau UK and MST.
