Our Ferry and Cruise vessel consultancy services include Vessel Sourcing and Brokerage, Inspections and Surveys, Valuations and Appraisals, H&M and P&I Insurance, Manning, Optimal Timetabling and more.
Knowing your company will be judged by your fleet, it is vital that its performance is optimal, often derived from purpose-built tonnage. Yet, with changing traffic patterns, even the most purposefully-designed vessel can soon be outmoded. FMS can help you find the right assets for your business, helping you source and match the right vessel to the role it will play in your fleet.
Vessel Sourcing and Brokerage
Whilst FMS does not offer direct brokerage services, we have had considerable experience and success in sourcing optimum tonnage that is matched to the client’s needs rather than those who may be more inclined to offload vessels that are currently on their books.
Inspections and Surveys
The inspection and survey of vessels, whether for purchase, charter or insurance purposes, damage assessment, conversion or upgrade is a key component of our work. Similarly we are able to assess ports and terminals with advice on berthing facilities, ferry terminal usage and logistics.
Valuations and Appraisals
The FMS team maintains a keen eye on the shipping industry, and by keeping abreast of developments in the market, we are well-placed to assess the value and suitability of vessels for charter, sale or purchase. Importantly we research appropriate regional markets targeting specific operators where we can be assured of interest.
Hull & Machinery and P&I Insurance
Marine insurance is an essential component in the shipping sector, there to protect the owner, passengers, cargo and crew. Our contacts can greatly assist in negotiating and achieving preferential terms.
Because FMS has over four decades of experience in maritime business we understand what it takes for officers and ratings to be exceptional. With our global industry contacts we can help you source invaluable personnel to enhance and complete your fleet.
We believe passionately in linking capacity to demand, a simple statement that most operators fail to deliver. Our experienced team can advise on optimising your vessel timetables in order to provide the most efficient, cost effective and customer friendly service.
