To better serve our global clients, EGS decided in 2005 to establish its own vessel management company and expand its fleet of survey vessels. EGS Marine now provides crew and manages all six vessels in the EGS fleet from its logistics and services center based in Cebu, Phillipines. Our vessels can operate across the whole marine spectrum, and survey from full ocean depth to the water's edge. A full set of vessel specifications are available.
The RV Geo Resolution is one of the recent additions to the EGS fleet. Before her acquisition by EGS in 2014, the 68m long and 13m wide vessel was an US and later New Zealand Navy hydrographic survey vessel and as such is a comfortable an acoustically very quiet survey platform. During her conversion to a commercial survey vessel in Singapore, EGS have fitted the vessel with a dual frequency (24kHz/12kHz) Reson Seabat 7150-F full ocean depth multibeam system and a geophysical equipment suite capable to acquire high resolution analogue geophysical and in-situ geotechnical data to 2000m water depth.RV Geo Resolution Brochure
The Bold Explorer is a 68m multi-purpose geophysical and geotechnical survey vessel. This former Stalwart class vessel was fully refitted as a state of the art survey vessel in 2020, by EGS in Singapore.With a permanently mobilised survey spread, including a range of geophysical and geotechnical equipment, the Bold Explorer is able deliver a wide range of survey services, from coastal waters to full ocean depth.With its long range and autonomy, the Bold Explorer is available for projects around the globe.RV Bold Explorer Brochure
The RV Ridley Thomas is a 61m long ocean going survey vessel last refitted in 2012 in Spain. The RV Ridley Thomas is equipped with a full ocean depth Simrad EM122 and high resolution Reson SeaBat 7101 multibeam echo sounders and state of the art geophysical survey equipment. The RV Ridley Thomas is capable of carrying geophysical and geotechnical surveys in 2,000m of water. The RV Ridley Thomas is equipped with a V-Sat communication system for internet access and fast data transfer to shore base. The RV Ridley Thomas has carried geophysical surveys in all four corners of the world and proved to be a very reliable survey platform.RV Ridley Thomas Brochure

The EGS Ventus is a 50m multi-purpose geophysical and geotechnical survey vessel. The ice class vessel was fully refitted as a survey vessel in 2008, with further refurbishment in 2013.
With a permanently mobilised survey spread, including a range of geophysical and geotechnical equipment, the Ventus is able deliver a wide range of survey services, from coastal waters to ocean depth.
Currently based in the USA and with an impressive project track record, the EGS Ventus is available for projects around the globe.
The EGS Watchful is strategically based in the Solent on the south coast of the UK, well positioned to service British and northwest European inshore survey requirements. This versatile vessel is ideal for hydrographic and geophysical services.EGS Watchful Brochure
The EGS ECHO is a 15.3m purpose built aluminum survey catamaran launched in 2004. The vessel provides a fast, stable working platform for coastal survey operations, incorporating a moon pool, hydraulic crane and custom retractable transducer mounts for multi-beam work and USBL underwater positioning. The choice of main engines and specialist gearboxes provides the vessel with the ability to cruise comfortably and economically at up to 16 knots whilst also being able to run for extended periods at very low speed.EGS Echo Brochure
The RV EGS Pioneer is a medium size (overall length 24.4m, draft 3.5m) vessel located in North West Europe. As an ex Norwegian SAR vessel she provides a very robust and seaworthy hydrographic and geophysical survey platform. Capable of shallow water ultra high resolution seismic surveys, this makes her an ideal platform for the renewables market.RV EGS Pioneer Brochure
