Carisbrooke Shipping owns / operates a fleet of over 65 modern dry cargo and multi-purpose vessels from offices in Cowes (UK) and Zwijndrecht (Holland).

Cadet programme

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, 12,400 dwt MPP-Tween and grab-fitted 13,400 dwt bulkcarriers, which are now the backbone of our deep-sea trade.
