Introducing MJM Enterprise

17 December 2020

We are pleased to announce the design and build of a new purpose-built survey vessel; the MJM Enterprise. 

At 26m, the new vessel is designed to fulfil the future requirements of marine renewables projects, offering rapid mobilisation for survey and related activities, onboard processing and spacious, comfortable accommodation. The vessel will cater to multi-disciplined projects including hydrographic and geophysical survey, ROV inspection and benthic/environmental sampling.

Based in Middlesbrough, North East, we are local to notable offshore renewables projects such as the Sofia Offshore Wind Farm, where the Curtis Marshall recently performed site investigation works. Our team benefit from a strong track-record in developing vessels specifically for the offshore renewables sector. As a business, we strive to evolve and innovate to keep up with the ever-changing requirements.


The MJM Enterprise will be designed, developed and built by Marshall Jakeman Marine, before being made available for commercial charter.

The keel laying ceremony is on the 21st December 2020.

Expansion Plans for Mashall Jakeman Marine

19 October 2020

This month we've welcomed two new members to Marshall Jakeman Marine. 


With over 25 years' experience including almost 20 years in the Royal Navy, Nicholas Calvert joins us as Engineering Superintendent. Nicholas is an accomplished Senior Electromechanical Marine Engineer with relevant transferable skills, who has worked successfully in a range of demanding operational environments.


Mark Farrer is another new addition to our vessel crew and benefits from a 30-year track record working for companies including Sealion Shipping Company, Arklow Shipping and Bibby HydroMap. Mark has worked internationally and brings a wealth of marine experience to the team. 


Managing Director Chris Jakeman comments: 

"We're delighted to welcome Nicholas and Mark to Marshall Jakeman Marine. As we enter the fourth quarter of 2020, we're finalising our plans for 2021 and our experienced team will be fundamental in supporting our future growth. We've been blown away by the response to the relaunch of the Marshall Art earlier this year, receiving exceptional feedback from both new and existing clients. With Nicholas and Mark on board, we are confident that we'll continue to impress." 


Both Mark and Nicholas will support the Marshall Art; a 22.9m survey vessel converted in May 2020. With a spacious working back deck, multiple sensor deployment options and four double berth charterer cabins, the vessel is ideally suited to hydrographic, geophysical, ROV and environmental campaigns.

Marshall Art Multibeam Survey Trials Complete

Thanks to the guys from Norbit and SAND Geophysics, we are happy to announce that our survey trials were very successful. Over a 2 day period, the vessel was mobilised and launched to survey local shipwrecks with permission from English Heritage. 

A Norbit iWBMS Long Range Turnkey Multibeam Sonar was trialled using our survey pole, alongside a towed 3D Chirp. A pleasant couple of days generated some excellent results, and we are very positive about the capabilities of the Marshall Art.

To celebrate the launch of the Marshall Art, charterers will benefit from the following offers:

Free Mobilisation during 2020

During 2020 we are offering free mobilisation for any charter over 5 days. This means full access to the vessel on our slipway on the Tees for installation of survey equipment. 

Discounted DIMCON survey

We are also happy to 50% of the Dimensional control survey, having been pre-agreed with Geosight 3D.
