Moorfields appointed over specialist work boat builders

Simon Thomas and Nick O’Reilly, Partners of Moorfields Advisory, were appointed Joint Administrators of Meercat Workboats Limited on 3 November 2017.

Meercat Workboats was incorporated in 2008 originally trading from Trafalgar Wharf in Porchester but following its success in 2015 it was acquired by another company and later moved to a purpose built premise in Hythe, Southampton. The Company specialised in building work boats to provide companies with an effective solution to the problem of fast access and mobilisation to different locations.

All employees were made redundant prior to appointment.

Moorfields are now currently marketing the business and its assets for sales, interested parties should contact or call 0207 186 1175.

Nick O’Reilly, Joint Administrator “Meercat Workboats had built a successful niche business but unfortunately fell into financial difficulties earlier this year.

The business still presents a fantastic opportunity for right buyer, it has a loyal client base and good location to continue the business.”
