Diverse Marine celebrates a year of success
Diverse Marine is marking 12 months since its directors acquired the assets and equipment of their former employers South Boats IOW, securing the employment of 20 staff on the site.

Ben Colman, director, said: “We have been truly humbled by the support we have received from our staff, clients and suppliers and are proud to work with each and every one of them.”
Supporting other operators
Diverse marine has also supported many operators with maintenance and repairs including Solent & Wightline Cruises, Mareel/TurbineTransfers, Seaward, Newhaven Port Authority, Hampshire Police, NR Marine Services, Williams Shipping, Landau UK and MST.
As well as the harbour patrol RIB, newbuild contracts include a 10m Aluminium Survey Catamaran, a further 9m Aluminium RIB and a 24m Wind Farm Crew Transfer Vessel for Seacat Services on the Isle of Wight.
Diverse Marine works closely with Aluminium Marine Consultants, also now based at Medina Yard, which deliver the aluminium fabrication and hot works for most of the company’s projects.
Diverse Marine is now supporting SAFE Boats International in the UK and has a SAFE 35 Multi-Mission Interceptor demonstration vessel at its yard.
It also plans to build on its existing work in producing GRP and composite vessels, as well as fishing vessels.
