VESTLAND MARINE

Considering the number of Polish seafarers working on vessels operating ouit of UK ports it seems only logical that Poland should have its own fleets. Back in the communist era there was a Polish national Shipping Company which I think still exists judging by some of the funnel markings I have seen. However, Vestland Marine started up in Gdynia in 2002. Their website says that they are a ship management company.

They manage five chemical carriers in addition to their offshore fleet. At the 2014 review several ships have disappeared from the management and it seems that the website is wildly out of date. But confusion reigns and I am finally not sure whether I updated Vestland or Vigeo.

Updated 22nd October 2014.
