SF Marina has been building and installing floating breakwaters and pontoons for marinas worldwide since 1918. We are committed to finding the best solution for every site. The sturdy tugboat pontoons for the operation of large vessels in a port on the Swedish West Coast are examples of the capacity of our factory in Wallhamn. The pontoons are 10 meters wide and 23 m long. They are also designed to accommodate heavy construction vehicles.
