over 75+ years of experience in the barge rental business.

We not only rent out our barges, we make sure customers have the right barge for the job, for the right price.

We specialize in offering
three kinds of barges:

Deck Barges

A barge with a flat deck that is used both for transportation and construction support. The flat deck is capable of holding thousands of tons of machinery, such as cranes and excavators. The deck also serves as a platform for holding oversized objects, such as bridge sections or personnel housing/offices. The inside of the deck barge is typically empty to allow for storage and/or counter-weighting. Glenn E. Daulton has a large fleet of deck barges available for rent or charter. Our Deck Barges carry an average of 1,600 – 1,800 tons per barge. Specifications for our barges are in the range of 195′ x 35′ x 10”. Always call us for complete details and specs.

Hopper Barges

Hopper Barges are similar to deck barges, except without a deck. They feature a large hopper, or cargo bin, for transporting bulk items, and are constructed with a double-hull to increase durability. The sides and bottom are separated from the hull by empty space allowing the barge to be strong yet light. These are often filled with bulk items like coal, sugar, timber products, rocks and other cargo. Hopper Barges are ideal for efficient transport of commodities. Hopper barges have several hull configurations and cover options, so contact us and we will help you find the best Hopper Barge for your job.

Spud (Crane) Barges

Our Spud Barges are available in several sizes starting at 110’ x 30’ x 7’ up to 180’ x 54’ x 12’, and are outfitted with 4 spud wells for flexible spud placement. All of our Spud Barges are capable of handling cranes with up to 200 ton lifting capacity or higher, and our Spud Barges are equipped with either mechanical or hydraulic winches to raise and lower spuds. We also offer “Drop Spuds” – this barge option is rented without winches to raise or lower spuds. Contact us to discuss your specific job specs, and we’ll help you determine which spud barge is right for your applications.
