Well known in the dredging industry this backhoe dredger is fitted with the overwhelmingly powerful 65 tonne Liebherr 964.  The Witton is the ultimate in marina maintenance and capital dredging.  With a 4m3 bucket, the hopper barges are loaded at a rapid rate therefor minimising time on site and disruption to the day to day running of the marina.  Locally to the UK there is no other competitor to this market leader.

Working in tandem with our split hopper barges, our self propelled spud leg backhoe dredger, Witton Two, is purpose built to allow us to navigate small marinas that larger vessels would not be able to enter.
