GULFMARK TRINIDAD

GulfMark are constantly extending their operations, having started apparently as a small company operating four ships out of Aberdeen, with American money. They now operate in the Gulf of Mexico, the Caribbean and South America, UK and Norway.

Fortunately for we ship spotters Gulf have divided up their fleet into areas, so we can tell which ships are working where. It should be noted that this section includes four what Gulf call "Fast Supply Vessels", which seem to be halfway between a crew boat and a PSV.

It appears that since May 2011 work has dropped off in the Trinidad area and a number of platform ships have been repatriated to the United States. There also may have been the disposal of two large crew boats which are listed here in Disposals.

At the time of the 2015 review there had been one ship added to the local fleet. Doubtless there are a number of ships being built for the company but at the present one cannot say exactly to where they will be assigned.
