Burnham Associates

Waterway Improvements

Contracting Service

Burnham Associates is experienced and committed to working with federal, state and municipal governments as well as with the owners of shore side facilities to plan and execute the work of maintaining and improving our waterways and access to their shore side facilities. Our Resume bears out a history of finding reliable and, when needed, innovative means to accurately perform the needed work with as little disruption to the surrounding facilities as possible.


Burnham Associates utilizes dozens of pieces of specially adapted tools, equipment, and vessels to construct, excavate, dismantle and repair almost anything on and under the water. Our crew thrives on any opportunity to create a new and better way to get the job done. While dredging and rock removal is our strength, Burnham always welcomes a challenge and flourishes where others fall short. We specialize in everything from pipeline concealment to remedial dredge work including all aspects of marine construction. With decades of work history and more importantly experience under our belt, Burnham is capable of completing some of the most technically demanding projects.


Burnham Associates offers coastwise towing service for the entire East Coast. Our fleet includes the Tug Natick, a 109’ YTB ex- Navy tug and the Aegean Sea, a 76’ twin screw tug providing extremely nimble performance with a mountain of power. Along with the two tug boats, Burnham offers two azimuth drive pushboats, Mantis and Strider, as well as a variety of workboats and crew transport boats. With many years of experience in the industry, Burnham provides the tools and knowledge for almost all towing jobs.
