Although the Company was only formed in 2015, Carmet Marine employ a core management team with over 40 years’ experience in the marine engineering and shipbuilding industry. The Company is a wholly owned subsidiary of Carmet Tugs, a long standing family company with a reputation for honesty and integrity, and Carmet Marine will be operated with the same principles in mind.

The shipyard is located on the River Mersey, and the facilities available make it an ideal choice for vessels to slip for services such as general maintenance, mechanical and hull repairs, vessel refits, wash down, repaint and any other requirements for class surveys. Additionally Carmet Marine have access to the expert knowledge for electrical and hydraulic components as well as propulsion systems.

The recent acquisition of a 110T boat hoist has enabled the Company to offer a more efficient dry-docking service to the workboat industry, working 24/7 to ensure vessels are able to be worked on with minimal delay.

Carmet Marine also have wet berth facility in Birkenhead for any repair works that can be done afloat. The berth is also utilised for longer term storage as an alternative for vessels needing to stay locally with direct access to the Irish Sea area.
