Fratelli D'Amato is
an Italian company, building and owning at the
time of writing a set of UT 755s all of which
are currently being managed by Gulf Offshore.
What else. Nothing is known abut the company,
but on the basis that at some time they will
probably take over their own management we have
identified it separately from Gulf here.
The ships are
registered in UK and operated in the North Sea.
At the 2013 review
it was found that they had sold two ships to
Tidewater and brought two more into service.
They also have two ships on order for delivery
late in 2013.
The company has
develoepd its website since the last review, and
in 2014 we have found out that it is an Italian
shipping company started up by the D'Amato
family in 1870. In the present day they operate
a fleet of bulk carriers and tankers and
are building some container ships. Of greater
interest to visitors to this site, they operate
a small offshore fleet of platform ships, the
details of which can be found here. Since the
last review two ships ahave been added to the
fleet and two sold.
