Branding Offshore was found on the Westcoasting
website. They are a company principally involved
in the brokering of fishing vessels. The company
is a joint venture between Westcoasting and
Messrs. Stolk/De Branding of IJmuiden/Holland.
This resulted early 1996 in an off-shoot called
Branding Offshore Services (BOS), (whereby in
January 2002 the shares held in the joint
venture by Messrs. Stolk/De Branding were taken
over by "Landfall" Transport & Towage BV of
Sliedrecht/Holland) which company operates 2
Offshore Supply Vessels and 1 'Stand-by' vessel
which are world-wide operated, as a result of
this a towage, chartering and salvage department
was opened late 1996.
currently only found one vessel owned by this
company, which although it does not look like it
is apparently an anchor-handler.
Updated 3/12/10 (There seem
to have been no changes)
At the review in October 2012
we found that they had sold their ship to a Nigerian
company, so it appears again elsewhere.
