we love a challenge...

One of our most interesting projects was to find a Dutch barge that could be used as a church - to be moored in the centre of London’s Docklands!  Working closely with our long standing colleagues at SRF (Ship Repair Friesland) in Harlingen, it turned out to be one of our most enjoyable and satisfying projects.

Having found a shortlist of vessels, we took our clients to view them. We chose a very large type that would give us a wide interior. The vessel was surveyed, bought, then shortened. We managed the conversion, imported the barge and then sailed her slowly and majestically onto her new mooring in West India Dock beside Canary Wharf in London.

St Peter’s has been holding services there since 2003 and is hosting an ever-growing congregation. This project was featured by the BBC on 'Inside Out', when a team joined us on the delivery trip all the way from Friesland.
