About Us /Company Profile
Floating Pontoon Hire has grown over many years to become one the largest and most respected specialist designers and installers of modular pontoon systems in the UK. We have a large inventory of pontoons along with a wide range of fittings and accessories enabling us to construct complicated and specialist installations as readily as simpler ones.
We have made significant investment in the training of our staff to give us a team fully qualified to operate across different market sectors including construction, railways, reservoirs, managed waterways and at sea. We have considerable expertise in specifying, constructing and installing pontoon installations for a wide variety of uses.
Floating Pontoon Hire is ISO 9001:2008 certified.

Solent Rib Charter is the official supplier to the Royal Navy, Royal Yachting Association, 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.
