What we do


McGuire Maritime has extensive experience in maritime operations and management. We are therefore uniquely positioned to assist organisations to improve or expand their maritime operations.


Maintaining the highest level of integrity, McGuire Maritime has developed a clientele list for both chartering and the sale and purchase of existing ships. This has been achieved through our ability to provide clients with insights into the market, our knowledge of operations and an understanding of the client’s business needs.


Ensuring that your staff and crews are appropriately trained and educated is essential.
The shipping industry is a unique industry with its own unique operating environment. As a result there is no ‘one size fits all’ approach to training employees. Each organisation will have distinctive requirements when it comes to the development of educational programs for both new and existing staff.


Working in the specific markets of icebreakers and project-related cargoes, McGuire Maritime can source the best vessel for your project.

Sales & Purchase

Whether you are buying or selling vessels, McGuire Maritime can help ensure that transactions are concluded with strictest confidentiality.
