Faversham Ships was formed in 1994 with the acquisition of the vessel Conformity.
A slow but steady approach to development has been undertaken and the company now operate cargo vessels ranging from 2380 to 4850mt dwt. This Fleet comprises conventional & low air draft coastal vessels (suitable for dangerous cargoes, loading / discharging aground, highly manoeuvrable), providing a flexible range of ships types and sizes.
A 'hands on' approach to the operation of the ships is undertaken by ex - seafarers with specific experience of this kind of Vessel and trade.
Obtaining vessels tailored to the smaller niche markets has always been the company’s policy (and remains to this day). High maintenance standards and quality crew have allowed good long term relationships to build up with charterers and return customers - steady employment over prolonged periods has followed.
Apart from our own Ownership activities, We can also carry out full commercial / chartering and technical management activities and undertake projects such as Ship Inspections, ISM audits Superintendency and Dockings for other operators. The cost savings through contracts and long term contacts used for our own fleet being passed on to the benefit of others.
