Designed to meet the most demanding Pilot boat requirements in all sea states.

Berthon Boat Company has been building boats since 1877, details of which can be found on our Build register, which includes Nelson Pilot Boats for UK and International Port Authorities.

Pilot transfer ergonomics are always at the heart of the design process in order to provide a safe and reliable platform for 24/7 operation. The Coxwain is afforded excellent visibility of the pilot during the transfer evolution with generous, well placed windows and a coach-roof design offering visibility right down to the pilots footing on the deck. An uncluttered transfer space and a wide side deck offer the Pilot the highest level of security.
