Acheron III

The Acheron III is a 23.9m by 7.3m ocean-going twin screw tug which has a 16T bollard pull. The Acheron III can be chartered alongside our barges the Pohunui or the Annie McC. The Acheron III has done several trips with the Pohunui in tow to the Chatham Islands, supplying material, equipment, and machinery for the break-water build with HEB Construction.

The Acheron III has been fitted out with the latest WASSP F3 Multi-beam Sonar System for accurate surveying of the seafloor. Whether you are looking for accurate soundings for a survey, monitoring requirement or some lost equipment, the Acheron III has the capability.
