Looking back over the past 30 years, we have averaged about 42 sales/charters per year.

Marcon International has for the past 32 years specialized as shipbrokers in the offshore petroleum, towing and marine construction industries. Since our first sale in 1983, Marcon has sold or chartered 1,302 vessels & barges, including over 883,320BHP in tugs, 825,142dwt ocean deck barges, 153,065dwt ocean hopper barges, 6.605 million bbl capacity in ocean tank barges, 89 crew & pilot boats, 168 supply, utility & tug supply and 56 survey, seismic & support vessels, in addition to others.
We ensure that vessels offered on a published basis are immediately reported to prospective Buyers or Charterers, as well as included in our printed newsletter and on our website. Vessels offered on a private and confidential basis can also be offered “unnamed” to a very select number of our clients and all information is treated with care and not included in the newsletter or website listings. At present we average abt. 10 new direct listings per month.
Our clientele includes companies worldwide. Three times a year, a printed newsletter, containing approximately 800 listings, is sent out to over 7,000 recipients worldwide. This is only a portion of the over 1,600 listings available on our website, www.marcon.com, which is updated on a daily basis. The website contains further details on selected vessels and barges, such as drawings and photographs. The website allows users to search for vessels based upon type, size, location and other criteria.
Although specializing as shipbrokers in the offshore towing and petroleum industry, we also handle other types of vessels. A breakdown of other classes of vessels and barges plus various market reports and articles can be downloaded from the website, faxed or e-mailed on request.
All services of Marcon International, Inc. are at your disposal. We look forward to working closely with you on the marketing of your vessels and barges for sale and / or charter.
