Shipbroking Services

DMC have been providing shipbroking services for over 25 years on a global basis, primarily focused on the offshore energy market. 

Our shipbroking services cover both the sale & purchase and chartering elements of the business. In addition to vessels we also cover project support equipment such as diving systems and ROV equipment.

As a company with a core skill and expertise in subsea intervention DMC have brokered the sale and purchase of numerous dive support vessels as well as complete saturation diving systems, together with numerous component parts.

DMC have the ability to provide shipbroking services for a single vessel on a spot charter basis to full marine spread for large complex projects, consisting of multiple vessels over multiple years. DMC will be able to provide the contract support, charter party / sale agreement negotiations and tender support, to both charterers and vessel owners.

DMC have successfully brokered a wide range of equipment including saturation systems, ROVs, subsea sensors, survey equipment, generators, LARS / A frames. Recently we have widened our core focus to include provision of inland equipment as well as offshore equipment.
