Ships, Barges, Ferries & Floatels Rentals for Temporary Workforce Accommodations 


Construction, transportation, and large infrastructure projects often require temporary workforce housing. Available passenger ships, barges, and other types of vessels can be rented to use as floating accommodations. Floatels and offshore vessels offer a cost-effective, safe, and secure solution to accommodate workforce personnel. 

The vessels can be brought in and docked in any port city or coastal area, or anchored offshore. Accommodation barges can also be anchored in major inland waterways.
