Passenger Boat On River Thames In London

This project was an exciting one. With the UEFA Euros 2016 starting on the 10th of June in 2016 our clients were looking for a well experienced company who were insured to install bespoke artificial grass for a theme event to suit the football championships.

With a handful of custom-designed sport pitches and attention to detail synthetic turf installers, ARTTRAGrass was the company that was chosen to transform this Typhoon Clipper Boat which is owned by MNBA into a mini football pitch.


The ARTTRAGrass team arrived bright and early as usual and after a 20 minutes Health and Safety brief we were escorted to the boat by the captain and engineers who were so thorough and helpful. After loading all the Astroturf, adhesives and materials onto the boat the team were met with a film crew who were going to record the whole installation process.

We got cracking alongside the Green Carpet Events team,and worked nonstop unit it all was completed at approximately 10:25pm.

Problem Solving

The boat was measured up by another organisation and presented to ARTTRA Grass who the prepared all the the rolls in the factory befor the visit. Onsite the were a few changes and therefore the dimensions of the white artificial grass was to altered to accomodate the chances but this seemed almost impossible as the boat was to restart service in 3 hours and getting in more artificial grass in from our warehouse in Milton Keynes within that short period of time would be impossible. With his experience and skill Eric was able to recalculate and use offcuts from the van and from under the seats (where it wasn’t visible to the general public) to resolve the issue and calm the panic.
