Platform Work Boat

Platform Work Boat

The ELASTEC Platform Work Boat (specs) is manufactured at our Carmi, Illinois USA facility. Its rugged design allows for this versatile utility service barge to perform a variety of waterway maintenance and marina tasks. This vessel requires minimal upkeep as it has few moving parts and its propulsion is provided by a single outboard. Custom deck arrangements are available per your design or project specifications.

Designed for sheltered waters, ELASTEC Platform Boats are manufactured from high-quality marine-grade aluminum. The open deck arrangement and removable railings allow for an unobstructed workspace over the water. The all-aluminum hull and deck allow for project-specific equipment to be bolted or welded to the deck. Custom deck arrangements are available per your design or our design per your specifications.
