Carisbrooke and Nova join up

From 1 January 2017, Carisbrooke Shipping Ltd and Nova Marine Carriers SA are to consolidate all of their commercial shortsea bulk activities.

The coordination of all chartering and operations activities will be channelled from Nova Marine’s HQ in Lugano, Switzerland, while both groups will retain their commercial networking offices. This will include the effective control of both groups’ vessels and contracts.


The firms said this consolidation is a tangible example of two traditionally shortsea shipowners joining forces to service their mutual customers with a modern and versatile fleet of around 60 vessels ranging from 5,000 dwt up to 15,000 dwt.

Carisbrooke Shipping controls a combination of 48 shortsea, MPP, and bulk carriers (including grab-fitted vessels) ranging from 5,000 dwt up to 13,400 dwt with an emphasis on UK-Continent/ Mediterranean shortsea market as their core business, with grains, fertilisers, coal, forest products, etc.

Carisbrooke is also actively involved in dry bulk trades within and between European, transatlantic, Americas and Far East markets. Nova’s core business is mainly on Baltic-North Europe/Mediterranean-BlackSea trades with 25/32,000 dwt grab-fitted bulk carriers, and it has close associations with the steel and cement industries.
