These services include shipbuilding and repair, carbon & stainless steel fabrication, precision engineering and machining, design and project management, bespoke marine electricals, hydraulic services, specialist diesel engineering and parts, testing and commissioning.

Alicat’s main operational base is in Great Yarmouth, a seven acre site with direct access to the North Sea. The facility itself combines some of the most comprehensive range of services, equipment and skilled personnel around, and provides bespoke marine and engineering technical solutions across most sectors. We also have a boat building and repair facility in Cowes, Isle of Wight, through our sister company South Boats IOW Ltd.

Established in May 2009 as a subsidiary to established shipbuilders and engineers Richards Dry Dock and Engineering Ltd, the company was initially formed to build the new Alicat Range of aluminium workboats serving as crew transfer vessels for the offshore wind sector. Since then our vessels have worked on most of Europes wind farms during construction and operational phases, as well as providing transfer, support and guard duties to other sectors including the Oil and Gas sector.
