A liftboat is a self-propelled, self-elevating vessel with a large open deck capable of carrying equipment and supplies in support of various offshore exploration and production activities. A liftboat can rapidly raise its hull clear of the water to provide a stable platform from which offshore maintenance and construction work can be conducted.
