Lay-Up Ship Management Services

In co-operation with local authorities, Dexter Offshore has developed a safe and secure warm or cold lay-up storage area for shallow water vessels and barges in Dubai. For the past 3 years, we have been providing easy and hassle-free parking facilities for laid-up ships at a lower cost than many other ports, jetties or anchorages.

All laid up vessels are securely moored with heavy anchor gravity blocks and lines in a sheltered area. Whether your vessel is fully manned, partially manned or unmanned, our marine services are in full compliance with local rules and regulations and we look forward to accommodating you.

Our storage area features the following benefits for ship owners and operators:

  • Lower berthing fees than all ports in GCC.
  • Easy and hassle-free access.
  • No need to wait 48 hours for security passes and CID clearance.
  • In-house marine surveillance and maintenance team.
