Clayton’s Towing to the rescue — on land or at sea

When something happens to your vessel while you’re enjoying one of the state’s waterways or lounging off the coast, who do you turn to?

Along with offering heavy haulage and heavy equipment recovery services, Clayton’s Towing is also one of the top marine salvage companies. Our dedicated Marine Recovery team offers a range of marine services that include marine towing for when the worst happens in Queensland’s waters.

Marine towing to get you back to shore

Sometimes the worst happens, and we just don’t expect it. You overestimate the amount of fuel in the tank, or the battery has chosen that moment to give out. But if you’ve ever been out on the water with an engine that won’t start and without enough wind to tack back to shore, you are probably familiar with marine towing. Just drop the anchor and give Clayton’s Towing a call! We’ll be there right away — with our range of marine services, you’ll never be left adrift.

Marine salvage and sunken boat recovery

Our Marine Recovery Division includes divers and marine salvage experts to bring your boat back to the surface in the event of a sinking. Acting quickly is vital when a vessel sinks to protect the environment and reduce the losses suffered by the boat owners. By getting to the scene and into the water quickly, we can prevent oil, fuel, or other contaminants from leaking, and by re-floating the vessel as soon as possible, we can make the area safe for other boaters. It also helps to minimise the amount of damage to the sunken vessel, which could be the difference between scrapping or repairing your vessel.

Fully equipped for any situation

Clayton’s Marine Recovery Division is one of the top marine salvage companies in South-East Queensland with a full range of equipment including:

  • Fully qualified marine salvage divers
  • Dive barges
  • Lift bags

Whatever the situation, we have the equipment and expertise to tackle it.
