Damen builds on success in Caribbean market

The Dutch ship and boat builder Damen has been selling tugs and other specialised maritime vessels to customers in the Caribbean since the 1970s and today its ‘Americas Region’ accounts for some 20 per cent of worldwide sales. In fact, Damen has been so successful, over such a long period, that area manager Alan Borde told Caribbean Maritime: “We see customers that we sold to in the 1970s now returning to us for replacements.”

To give a snapshot of Damen’s current performance in the region, at the end of 2017 the company was in the final stages of delivering two Stan Pilot 1505 vessels for the Port Authority of Jamaica. Just before that, Damen had delivered patrol vessels and interceptors to the Trinidad & Tobago Coast Guard and a FCS 5009 fast crew boat to Trinidad’s National Energy Corp as well as vessels for the Royal Bahamas Defence Force.
