Calvey Marine has been at the forefront of the ship-repair and marine supplies industry for thirty years, assisting clients with projects ranging from routine dockings and conversions, to marine supplies and emergency repairs.  As UK agents for the most prestigious shipyards worldwide, they also partner with leading suppliers such as AMI, Greens Power and Seatec Subsea.

Why their Clients come back, again and again.

Clients come to Calvey Marine knowing that they will be given an honest, professional and efficient service, offering considerable time and money savings.

Due to the recently implemented IMO regulations, many of the Chinese shipyards have no availability until the second half of 2020 and this has had a ripple effect on pricing.  Drydocks World Dubai is becoming increasingly competitive and Lisnave Shipyard, Portugal, enjoyed an extremely busy end to 2019 priding itself on a high number of repeat clients, testimony to the quality of the service provided.

As such, there has never been a better time to use an agent.  Calvey’s team has excellent and well-established relationships with the shipyards they represent, meaning they can negotiate the most competitive tenders for ship owners and managers.  They also have access to the most up to date information regarding dock availability and work very closely with the yards’ commercial departments to best accommodate our clients’ vessels and secure the required dock space.

As marine agents, Calvey Marine takes control of all projects ensuring they are completed to the highest possible standard and giving clients access to 24/7 services. From an initial consultation to final installation and quality checks, they are equipped to manage the life cycle of vessels and marine products through maintenance and repairs.
