    Buoyant market sees new day rate records for PSVs

    News // August 16, 2006

    Having reported fixtures of in excess of £100,000 and even up to £110,000 per day for anchor handlers in the North Sea, broker Offshore Shipbrokers Ltd (OSL) says record†rates are also being achieved for PSVs.

    In its latest daily bulletin, OSL said: "Only a handful of fixtures have been concluded in the last 24 hours due to extremely limited vessel availability. Currently the demand remains so strong that any tonnage showing availability within the next 7-10 days is being quickly snapped up. Anchor handlers are now believed to be regularly fixing at circa £100,000, whilst PSVs are also setting new records, with latest rates believed to be circa £48,000."
