Western Work Boats is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Seaworks Ltd. Based in Wellington New Zealand, the Seaworks group of companies provide the offshore, subsea and marine industries with a comprehensive range of specialist support vessels located around the country, ROVs, marine equipment and services.

Western Work Boats provide safety focused, experienced and dependable work boat charter and vessel hire for marine projects including marine survey, biosecurity in-water cleaning, research, towing, salvage, dive support, film support and marine construction projects.  Working New Zealand wide and throughout the Pacific, we carry out our operations to the highest quality and safety standard using our fleet of vessels operated by experienced personnel.

Our values

We are lucky enough to operate in areas of New Zealand that most people never get to see – from the New Zealand’s Sub-Antarctic Islands in the south to the Kermadec’s and further north into the Pacific. 

We believe it is vital to treat the marine environment with the respect and sensitivity that it deserves, and operate using sustainable practices that help preserve the integrity of this special environment. 

Western Work Boats cares about our team members, the environment, and the communities in which our many varied projects take place. We look forward to partnering with you to achieve the best possible outcomes for your business.
