Ship Lay-Up & Support

When your vessel is not currently in use, it's important to maintain it to ensure it can quickly mobilise when required.

A lay-up period will reduce the operating costs of your vessel, but you should have a plan in place with procedures to protect the vessel, its structure, machinery, ballast tanks, holds, pipelines and cargo systems.

By using Dales Marine to oversee your lay-up, owners and operators can be assured that vessels will be well serviced with regular maintenance, inspections, and regular status reports.
