MarineDash is a newly launched online service designed to connect vessel owners with prospective charterers. The service caters initially to vessels for hydrographic and geophysical survey, ROV and dive support, geotechnical sampling and environmental studies.
MarineDash is designed to satisfy a growing industry need, particularly within the offshore renewables sector. With considerable experience within the industry, the company owners understand the difficulties faced both by charterers and vessel owners. The company recognises the valuable role that vessel brokers play within the industry, and the service is designed to make the process easier for them too.
MarineDash allows prospective charterers to search and filter vessels by capability, availability, location and other pertinent information to support tender or project managers. Registered users can build a fleet of preferred vessels, contact owners directly through the site, and see a list of previous projects. They can sort by availability, last updated, as well as a range of vessel features.
For vessel owners, MarineDash will optimise the vessel listing to bring out its best features, including copywriting and photo editing, if required. The company can also provide enhanced marketing services, including photography, UAV videography. To support owners during quiet periods, they will also be able to sign up to additional promotion including targeted emails, social media posts and a premium listing on the MarineDash home page. MarineDash will be heavily marketed online using a combination of Pay Per Click and Paid Social advertising. The fact that only verified users can register an account will also reassure vessel owners that they will receive high-quality enquiries from the service.
Environmental sustainability is at the core of the company's mission, with a portion of all vessel subscriptions donated to the Big Blue Ocean Cleanup. The non-profit organisation is on a mission to end ocean pollution and has removed more than 2million kg of rubbish already. They help keep the oceans clean, protect vulnerable marine animals, provide free educational resources, research ocean pollution for policy change and support the development of innovative technologies.
