About The Work Barge Charter – Landing Craft ‘Reef Safari’

Charter workboat/landing barge for hire from Cairns, Queensland.

North Marine has a full range of workboats and barges for charter.

Work landing barge Reef Safari is an 8-meter aluminium landing craft with a bow door. She carries up to 12 persons.

Suited to both barge harbour work and ocean-going projects, Reef Safari is configured to provide cargo or fuel transfer or as a general work barge.

A 0.3-meter draft makes her ideal for shallow water work or beach work.

Additional fuel cells (capacity 2 x 1500 litres) or a commercial diving team are available, if required.

She may be chartered alone or as a support boat to one of our other charter vessels – such as North Marine tugboat ‘Gulf Explorer’.
