Qualified team

We have made significant investment in the training of our staff to give us a team fully qualified to operate across different market sectors of commercial, corporate and private. Across the team there is experience of installation for construction, railways, reservoirs, managed waterways and at sea.

Over the years we have gained considerable expertise in specifying, constructing and installing pontoon installations for a wide variety of uses. Please look around this site for examples of our work.


Floating Pontoon Hire is proud to be ISO 9001:2008 certified. We hope our attention to detail and quality control is apparent from the content on this website. A high proportion of our business is repeat custom from clients we have impressed in the past - a testament to our working ethic.


Floating Pontoon Hire is a division of Solent Rib Charters Ltd, Europe’s largest operator of ‘Rib’ motor boats. Solent Rib Charter is the official supplier to the Royal Navy, Royal Yachting Association, Cowes Week, Volvo Ocean Race, Americas Cup, Clipper Ventures, Offshore Challenges and many other prestigious organisations.

Extensive marine experience

With our extensive experience of marine operations in the UK, Europe, Asia and the Middle East, we have built a wealth of practical as well as technical know-how whether at sea or inland. We have installed pontoon systems as far away as Sicily!

Inventory and vehicles

As well as our extensive inventory, we have a fleet of vehicles and trailers, some fitted with ‘Hiab’ cranes enabling us to manage delivery ‘in house’ so that we can install the system wherever and whenever required. We are also able to transport the system by water if practical – even at sea.
