About Fairways Marine Brokerage

Independent commercial shipbroking company based in the United Kingdom and offering global services in:

  • Sale and Purchase
  • Chartering
  • Newbuilds
  • Valuations
  • Transport and mobilisation

The company was established in 2008 and provides brokerage services to vessel owners, charterers, shipyards and vessel operators worldwide. Such entities requiring vessels and barges for port operations, shipyard activity, marine and coastal construction, offshore energy (oil and gas, and renewables such as offshore wind), harbour towage, subsea towage, crew transfer, survey, and floating accommodation.

As Shipbrokers we act as intermediaries between parties involved in the commercial marine business, facilitating charter, and sale and purchase transactions for vessels, barges and other maritime assets.

We are with you through the journey. Finding buyers if you are looking to actively dispose of your vessel or finding vessels if you are in the market for additions to your fleet. Likewise for sourcing charters and charterers.

Our extensive knowledge and experience in the market has enabled us to build up a worldwide network and invaluable market insight.

Our website has a selection of vessels and barges for sale and / or charter. However, we undertake a large proportion of our work with those not necessarily on the open market. So, if you can’t initially find what you are looking for, please get in contact and we will endeavour to assist.

Once we have located a vessel or found a buyer for your vessel, we will work with you and negotiate on your behalf.

Not every vessel is in the location it needs to be in following purchase or charter agreements. We can assist with mobilisation of vessels, barges and marine assets to the required location via crewing, wet towage, heavy lift and project cargo.

We work on a commission only basis in the majority of instances, which gives you the flexibility to test the market with no up front costs. Commission being paid to ourselves where we are involved in the fixture of a charter or the completion of a sale.
