With the increase of ships laid up due to the current economic conditions, GAC Sri Lanka’s lay-up service is available at all Sri Lankan ports. The inner anchorage point at the Trincomalee Port has been identified as the most ideal lay-up location due to its strategic location in the Indian Ocean, which is accessible to all types of craft in all weather conditions and is under 24x7 surveillance by the Navy.

Since only “Hot” lay-ups are available, GAC Sri Lanka has partnered with a local crew management company to provide Sri Lankan crew for the vessels during the lay-up period, to help owners minimize on crew and crew cost.
