Sentry Boats provides Safety Boat for Nissan Linkspan Bridge Refurbishment

Sentry Boats provided safety boat cover during a project to shot blast and re-paint the Nissan Linkspan Bridge. This work took place at the end of 2018 from October through to January 2019. Although the weather proved challenging, Sentry Boats once again delivered safety boat cover and crew using our latest addition, the Pioneer Multi II.

Our latest addition to the fleet was fully fitted out ready for work last year. Already she has performed really well on several contracts, delivering safety boat cover on River Tyne for various projects and also for water sampling and survey work on the Tyne.



Sentry Boats were happy to provide a fully coded and crewed RIB to Tyne Tees Television for the filming of the opening of the Great Exhibition of the North on 22nd June, 2018. The perfect weather on the day showed the River Tyne, bridges and the fountains at their best. The camera man and reporter from Tyne Tees were reporting live on the 6 o’clock news and Sentry 1 provided a great position for them to deliver their report.
