FLEET

Our fleet is custom-built for the film industry. From our specialty-made crafts to numerous support, transport and safety boats, we are fully prepared to handle any kind of marine situation. Designed for filming on the water, our Transport Canada certified vessels can accommodate every production need. Our fleet is supplemented by a range of support vessels for transporting your crew, keeping the production safe and getting the right shots and effects in the required time. Crosby Marine is constantly upgrading and maintaining our equipment in order to provide the most reliable and specialized fleet for working on the water.

 
 

Barges and Tugs

 

Support Barges- Our barges come in a wide range of sizes. Larger barges can be used to hold the circus at remote locations where land access is not an option, opening up stretches of coastline that are generally inaccessible.

Lighting and Camera Barges - Our barges are also ideal platforms for filming and lighting, and we can provide the ideal size of barge to get you those low-to-the-water shots without sacrificing space or stability.

Tugs - We have an array of tugs used to tow barges. The aft deck and top steering section of our tugs provide excellent shooting platforms when working amongst larger vessels and barges.

We have worked with barges ranging in size from 6ftx33ft to 200ftx50ft. Depending on the size of the barge we can float an entire circus.

Sectional Platforms

 

Our sectional platforms consist of single modular units made of high-density polyethylene. Their non-skid surface, unwavering stability and high load capacity make these unique platforms durable, convenient and safe. They are easily assembled and can be interlocked to form any desired floating structure, as well as double stacked to increase stability. To ensure crew safety while working, we have built customized railings for the various sized platforms.

This versatile vessel is often used as a camera platform capable of holding various camera cranes, makes for a highly respected tool while filming on the water. We custom built this boat for the industry with “user-friendliness” in mind.

With our vast network of boats based across British Columbia, we offer economical solutions for transporting your crew no matter where in the province the shoot is taking place.

Baja

A portion of our inflatables have optional electric motors that produce no emissions or sound, permitting crews to work in sensitive or protected areas such as pools and lakes. Our larger inflatables make for great support boats and our smaller vessels are light and compact, giving production a multifunctional tool for working on the water.
