MERV is a patented, hydraulically-expandable boat that trailers at 10-feet but is 14-feet wide in the water. It’s uniquely designed, V-shaped center, allows multiple work-modules to be mounted in the same boat. This allows tasks such as dock work, trash collection, algae cleanup and numerous other tasks off a 26’ work deck. The boat also functions as an oil skimmer or marine fire skid.
The first two MERVs were produced in Morgan City, LA, and one was recently in use at Texas A&M Univeristy Corpus Christi for student training and oil clean-up.
