Good planning of a dry docking can save considerable amounts of money. Where to dock, when to dock and which dockyard to use are the main questions that need answers. Creating a correct docking specification based on actual need and not on the standard dockyard spec sheet is the cornerstone of a docking. Finding a docking slot when and where wanted also require specific knowledge and contacts on the market.
With the correct partner, a dry docking can be efficient and cost effective thus minimizing the number of days off-hire. Creating an atmosphere of trust between the yard and the owner can be time-consuming and sometimes unsuccessful if the parties don’t share the language or an understanding of expectations.
