Gillie & Blair’s very experienced and qualified staff are used to handling a broad spectrum of marine craft including dry cargo bulkers, tankers, reefers, cruise liners, coasters, fishing vessels, heavy lift and offshore support vessels. In fact all types of ships are attended with diligence to ensure that both onshore and offshore our clients’ needs are met in a most professional and personal manner.

With over 100 years marine experience the company recognises the need for a cost effective and speedy turnaround of vessels and this is achieved with the help of the company’s efficient staff who are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
