Maersk Supply Service sells two anchor handlers

Offshore staff

LYNGBY, Denmark – Maersk Supply Service has sold the anchor handler tug supply vessels Maersk Seeker and Maersk Supplier.

In August 2016, the company announced that it is reducing its fleet by up to 20 vessels over a period of 18 months. The divestment plan is a response to vessels in lay-up, limited trading opportunities, and the global over-supply of offshore supply vessels in the industry.

To date, the Maersk Beater, Maersk Chancellor, Maersk Finder, Maersk Puncher, Maersk Provider, Maersk Forwarder, Maersk Feeder, Maersk Fighter, Maersk Seeker, and Maersk Supplier have been sold. 

The vast majority of the divested vessels are expected to be recycled or modified by their new owners to compete outside of the offshore supply vessel market.

Maersk Supply Service’s fleet is now 47 vessels.
