Shipbroking Services

Roughly half of DMC Ltd’s business is concerned with shipbroking, and this aspect of our activities is primarily focused on the offshore oil and gas market.
As the company has a core skill and expertise in sub-sea intervention, we also tend to specialise in sub-sea intervention and project support vessels. Our shipbroking services cover both sale & purchase and chartering elements of the business, and in addition to vessels we also cover diving systems and ROV equipment. To date, our shipbroking activities have covered all of the main oil and gas areas of activity, from the North Sea, the Mediterranean, the Caspian Sea, the Red Sea, Persian Gulf, India, SEA, the Americas and West Africa. Our sale & purchase activities also extend to deep diving systems, and over the past few years, DMC have brokered the sale and purchase of numerous complete saturation diving systems, together with numerous component parts.
