We are a privately owned shipping company based in Cowes, on the Isle of Wight (the heart and soul of UK sailing), and located approximately 10 miles south of Southampton, 20 minutes door-to-door by regularly served fast catamarans. From its relatively modest origins in the 1960s, the company has evolved into a worldwide shipping operation, trading barges and small coasters and supplying general cargo to the Isle of Wight
WE CAN DELIVER
In order to meet both customer demand and new developing trades, we upgraded our initial 5,000 dwt new-building program into a deep-sea trans-oceanic version, increasing the sizes to 10,500 dwt and 13,400 dwt and fitting them with heavy-duty self-sustained cranes and tweendecks. The success of this new program helped us in tailoring future new designs of geared 8,000 dwt bulkers, 12,900 dwt MPP-Tween and grab-fitted 13,400 dwt bulkcarriers, which are now the backbone of our deep-sea trade.
The Carisbrooke Shipping Fleet comprises 31 ships ranging from 5,000 DWT to 13,400 DWT.
FRAUD PREVENTION ALERT
URGENT: It has come to our attention that certain individuals have been falsely representing themselves as capable of facilitating employment and visas to work on Carisbrooke Shipping vessels.
It is very important that any genuine applications are handled exclusively through our Personnel Department (using firstname.lastname@example.org email address) with HR Manager Ms Lisa Straughton.
THE GREEN SHIP PROJECT
Carisbrooke Shipping has always looked in detail at methods to maximize the cargo intake of its vessels. While at the same time reducing fuel consumption, yet maintaining vessel speed.
At Carisbrooke Shipping, we are acutely aware of the unpredictability of fuel costs and have a strong focus to ensure our ships operate in the most sustainable manner possible.
The vast majority of the vessels in the Carisbrooke Shipping fleet have been installed with Energy Monitoring Equipment.
Professional, motivated and highly-trained crew are “fundamental” to safe, efficient shipboard operations in today’s competitive market.
