Intermarine Float Your Boat
Thu 23rd Sep 10 - 11:41

A LEADING Southampton pontoon manufacturer and designer will be the Official Supplier of the permanent floating pontoons for the Liverpool Boat Show.

Intermarine Ltd has been working closely alongside the show organisers and British Waterways for over a year, designing a new pontoon system and optimising layouts suitable for an event of this scale.

Scott Gaherty, Managing Director of Intermarine, said: "It is a major coup for us to be involved with a show of this scale and quality. From day one we wanted to be more than just the pontoon supplier and feel that our contribution of time, skills and resources, in addition to this supply contract, will be worth the effort."

Design of the new, bespoke, 4m wide pontoon system is now complete and production has started. The equipment is being designed to withstand the event crowd loading and will meet the strict quality and sustainability specifications as set out by Intermarine’s National Supply Contract with British Waterways.

The pontoons will use FSC certified decking and additional features such as recycled plastic fendering and low energy lighting are being considered for incorporation into the design. More information about Intermarine can be found online at www.intermarine.co.uk

An earlier announcement confirmed that British Waterways had invested £500,000 in Marine Industry Events to partly enable this project.
