Marine Layup Services offers a complete range of lay-up and layover services in Europe, from long-term wharf rental to a more cost-effective anchorage solution. We have partnered with crucial European companies to increase the quality of service we can offer. We have 40+ years of experience undertaking maritime activities globally. Clients who want to stay longer can request additional corrosion protection, so we introduced vapour corrosion inhibitors (VCI) and shrink wrap services.

Lay-up Locations in Europe

In Europe, there are many locations where wharves can be found. Many countries require some crew to stay onboard, while others don’t. There are limited cold lay-up locations for long-term lay-up. With this in mind, we also offer strategic locations in Europe that can easily support the European and African regions. See our page on Africa.
