The Penfret

In 2017 we invested in a new vessel, The Penfret, a 60m long dredger with a 962 gross tonnage.


This important investment has improved the efficiency of our operations, allowing us to keep up with the ever increasing demands for our products.


With a crew of 9, The Penfret operates out of Alexandra docks, dredging in the Severn channel.
