FIVE OCEANS SALVAGE

Five Oceans Salvage Consultants opened for business in 2006. The company operates Cyprus registered ships and is managed from an office in Athens. Doubtless the names of the managers of the company are familiar to those in the business in that city. Apparently in December 2007 they formed a joint venture with Swires although this association is not reflected by the Five Oceans website. All their vessels are capable of anchor-handling which is why the company is included here.

Since the last review in 2011 there apparently have been no changes to the company, and actually no additional photos of the fleet.

At the 2014 review it appears from their website that they have located the ships in ports in the Mediterranean and the Middle East, for the purpose of carrying out salvage activities. They have added one ship to the fleet.
