Green Marine DTS

Recommended Posts

The uncertainty over Brexit hasn't helped - Green Marine was always a premium yard and potential customers had to weigh in consideration of uncertain exchange rate in future delivery/import-export uncertainties.

Did not help that Vitters bought another yard in 2016 that could make the same parts for them, and with the Brexit ...

A real pity...

In scuttlebutt news this morning:

* Editor: a note from a reader on the matter:

Thought that you would be interested (saddened) to hear that Green Marine in Southampton has gone into receivership.

Dutch owners asset stripped it and left it to die. The yard was waiting for some great carbon project they had in the pipeline but it seems like the Dutch had different ideas...

It was in the throws of death for a while. Vitters had bought it when they realised that they were missing the boat (!) on composite construction. They have basically removed the knowledge base and tools to Holland and rather than make any effort to make the yard still work they called in the receivers. Luckily, many of the good guys walked out 6 months ago and started on their own www.fibremechanics.com Geoff Stock is the real deal when it comes to carbon.
