Sussex Transport Southampton HIAB


Sussex Transport have a large, varied fleet of vehicles which are able to move and deliver items of various dimensions accross the UK.  Last month we collected a boat from Portsmouth and delivered it to Southampton on one of our fleet of HIAB trucks.

As part of the Olympic events this year, a boat made from donated timber celebrates the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad has arrived in Weymouth, Dorset, after its maiden voyage.

The 30ft vessel, built in Emsworth, Hampshire, is  made from about 1,200 pieces of wood. One of Jimi Hendrix’s guitars makes up the tiller while a leftover plank from the London 2012 velodrome was also utilised. The boat is on display in Weymouth until 11 August.

The craft was built by a Portsmouth boat builder and Sydney 2000 silver medallist, and a yacht designer from Lymington and includes wood from the Mary Rose and the Ark Royal along with everyday items including paddles, spoons, and drum sticks.

Members of the public were also invited to bring wooden pieces to the boatyard in Emsworth, from where 1,000 people saw it launched on its two-month journey. The only criteria were that the items were made from wood and had a story behind them.

If good haulage floats your boat then why not try Sussex Transport the next time you need a water tight delivery. Call us on 01903 751100 or drop us an email to – we’d love to hear from you!
