Marine Debris Collection and Trash Skimmer Boats

A range of versatile boats and equipment for efficient plastic trash & litter removal

We design and build innovative trash and litter collection boats that offer the efficient removal of plastics from our marine environment..

Low Cost Trash Skimmers for retrieving plastics

The growing tide of marine debris consists mostly of small plastic items such as bottles, food wrapping, styrofoam cups, plastic bags etc.  The Buddy range of pontoons have been specifically developed to provide a simple, easy to use and low cost system for efficently retrieving all types of floatables.  A removable trash collection basket simply collects the plastic trash between the hulls without the need to any expensive on-board hydraulics or machinery.

  Built from high quality, fully recycleable marine grade aluminium and specifically designed for maximum stability, ease of  operation and low cost of ownership, this unique, road-transportable vessel features an interchangeable pod system which allows for a large number of tasks to be undertaken safely.  The range is available in hull lengths from 6m to 9m and all come with an efficient debris collection system. 

It's the ideal choice for keeping Marinas, Harbours, Inland Waterways and coastal waters free of plastic trash and man made debris and over 70 of these trash skimmers are in operation globally. 

These innovative trash skimmers ship in 40ft containers and can be  supplied with easy launch and recovery trailers for ease of transport and deployment.  Specifications and equipment options can be found here
