Yet another commercial success story with renowned Great Yarmouth based boat builder
As the 2013 Seawork International Show approaches, UK based marine exhaust specialist, Halyard, has announced yet another commercial success story with renowned Great Yarmouth based boat builder Alicat Workboats, to ensure its new four WFSV (Wind Farm Support Vessels) remain quiet on the water and to provide increased comfort for those on board.
With a growing need for all commercial vessels to be built with increasingly high levels of safety, reduced noise levels and enhanced crew comfort, Alicat Workboats has commissioned Halyard - internationally known and respected for its innovative design solutions - to design, build and install a full exhaust silencer system, for all four of its new state-of-the-art Offshore Wind Farm Service Vessels.

Company's fittings used on royal barge
Well respected deck equipment manufacturer Bailey Marine has confirmed that the company’s fittings were used on the Royal rowing barge “Gloriana” which was seen leading the Flotilla during the Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant on June 3rd.
