Leeships represents a close network of pre-vetted shipyards and works directly with a wider pool of shipyards, drydocks, and shipbuilders. Through established relationships with professional partners, Leeships ensures realistic savings are enjoyed by the shipowner or investor regardless of the size or scale of the project. These yards and their services are marketed under the Leeships / Leeyards brands.  Leeships/Leeyards has an extensive list of successfully contracted dry-dockings that spans across all type of vessels, from high-tech LNGs to vintage Bulkers. The key point of success is based on an evenly distributed effort in targeting project requirements, proper field preparation and post-fixture close follow up throughout project development.

Leeships shipyard services include:
Pre-vetting of tankers
Pre-yard/pre-docking inspections
Budgetary planning for drydocking, repairs, conversions or maintenance
Allocation of a yard or shipbuilder and contract negotiation/management
Full or partial yard supervision
Underwater works
Layup services

The allocation of a shipyard is undertaken by the ship management team after the three shipyards are given a full specification of repairs or works for a particular vessel. The costs and time of the nominated shipyard are assessed to complete the dry docking of the vessel as laid out in the dry dock specification. The three individual shipyards quotations are placed in a spreadsheet and assessed and compared for costs and time to complete the dry docking of a particular vessel which is sent to the Ship Owner and lodged within the cloud-based maintenance system.

The dry docking of a vessel needs forethought, planning, good logistics to maintain the vessel to the highest and safest standards for an operational vessel. Experience in marine engineering comes with time. We have in the house many first class engineers who have undertaken many successful dry docking for Ship Owners.  We offer care and proficiency in dry docking that leads to safe and cost-effective dry dockings.
