Aluminium barges are equipped to meet the needs of shellfish farmers.

Shellfish barges are conceived to have a big working surface on the deck and a big storage space, so as to best meet the users’ different professional needs.

Very stable and solid, these unsinkable boats (8 to 10 watertight tanks) can navigate with very little water and they support a considerable deck load.

These boats are equipped with a system of hydraulically retractable wheels, along with a retractable and removable steel jib.

This system enables a more autonomous, simple, rapid and safer handling of the boat. It can be activated by a connection attached to the tractor or by a device integrated to the bridge control, which functions due to an autonomous hydraulic group.

Approved by numerous professionals, this system has made the reputation of Navalu’s shipyard.
