Since its establishment in 2000, Blue Marlin has built a reputation as a dynamic and reliable shipping partner to the Caribbean shipping community. The flexibility which this market requires combined with the European background of its founders Erik Wind and Kees de Jong, has resulted in a solid shipping company. We consider ourselves as being reliable and innovative with an healthy appetite for the alternative!
We operate a fleet of 8 geared vessels varying between 3000 and 3500 dwat (see our fleetlist). All our vessels are box-shaped, grain-fitted, IMO fitted, IACS classed and shallow drafted. We carry various cargoes such as:
- Bulk grains, fertilizer, sugar, sulphur, salt
- Pipes and steel products
- Project cargo and heavy lifts (wind mills, excavators, yachts, etc)
- Army and defense equipment
- Imo cargo
We are fixing various cargoes basis single or multiple shipments (coa). If own tonnage is not available at the required port and/or date, we use our network to find suitable tonnage. We manage cargo contracts such as cement shipments from Colombia to various Caribbean ports, break bulk parcels from the USGulf to Trinidad and bauxite shipments from Guyana to Europe.
The Caribbean market requires an unique approach. Our expertise in infrastructure, port restrictions and local procedures, combined with our extensive network in the area, are an added value to our clients.
