Boat Builders

East Coast Diesel’s sister company, Alicat Workboats, are able to provide boat building services.

Alicat build the Alicat Workboat range of aluminium catamarans. We also build vessels from the range of sister company South Boats IOW Ltd as well as vessels to customers bespoke designs.

Our naval architects have a portfolio of vessel designs in aluminium, steel or glass reinforced plastic (GRP) to suit most sectors. We can work to existing customer designs, or develop new vessel designs for you.

Alicat operates arguably one of the UK’s most capable small vessel repair facilities in the UK. With a 200 tonne mobile vessel lift, 184m of quay heading, 7000 square metres of hard standing areas, wet & dry docks, and a complete compliment of dedicated services onsite, Alicat aims to take the hassle out of vessel maintenance and repairs. Customers can have one single point of contact and we can take care of the rest.

Alicat can also design and provide extensive modifications to existing vessels including hull extensions, wheelhouse relocation, internal refurbishment, electrical redesign, and repowering solutions.
