Services to cruise liners

Berthing

We currently carry out the berthing of all vessels using the new cruise liner terminal in Liverpool. These vessels range from small service craft, jack up rigs and cruise liners up to and including the Queen Mary 2, The Grand Princess and The World. Our riggers and boatmen are highly experienced and we pride ourselves on our efficiency and safe working practices. This service is available 24 hours per day 365 days per year subject only to weather and tidal conditions in the river. We hope to expand this service to other river berths and docks within the Merseyside area.
