About Southern Work Boat .

Starting in 1974 with one 50 seat passenger launch and two small workboats, Sean & Mary Crane began offering boat trips and workboat hire. The company developed at a steady pace with workboat tasks being undertaken around the South Coast and inland from Falmouth to the Thames.

Our Development

During the 80's the emphasis was on the passenger side of the operation with five passenger vessels carrying between 50 and 100 passengers. During the following years the fleet continually developed to its present nine vessels with two passenger launches and a varied selection of other craft to provide a good choice for customers.

Sean & Mary's son Jason is now an important member of the family firm being the director in charge of the day to day operations.
