Why work with us

In the public mind, global shipping is all about the big vessels – oil tankers, bulk carriers, container ships, cruise liners, etc. What’s less appreciated is the vast and diverse array of other specialised vessels involved, each with a specific, vital role in the supply chains that the marine, offshore and connected industries depend on.


These specialised vessels are the tugs, dredgers, bunker barges, fishing boats, high-speed ferries, offshore support and supply vessels, workboats, research vessels and numerous other types. Our approach is based on truly understanding your requirements and applying the tailored support you need. Focusing on vessel specialisation really is critical for these markets. It’s this understanding, experience and flexibility that make us the right partner for you at every stage in your ship’s lifecycle.
