Commercial Boat Services have been operating since 1998 and are part of the Chester Boat Company who have been operating commercial passenger boats for over 100 years.

All our activities are planned with safety first to allow the client to be assured that their men and equipment will be safe at all times. CBS are certified by the Maritime and Coastguard Agency and are accredited to a high score with Achilles who audit the whole system of work and monitor the quality of our on and off site operations. CBS is insured to a standard £10m but always arrange specialist insurance at any level as required.

Our experienced shore-based team are available to provide a clear breakdown of charges and keep you updated on the progress of your project.
