Shugart’s HEAVY-DUTY barge is also 10’4” wide,
but the depth is 7’ instead of 5’. This extra depth
provides a significantly stronger platform as well as additional
freeboard. This extra strength and freeboard may be necessary
for heavier lifts or when barges are used in surf or choppy waters.
Like our regular barges, the heavy-duty barge is available in
lengths of two, three, and four barge-widths.
