That capital will be used to buy a fourth and fifth platform support vessel, which the company uses to support the offshore oil and gas industry through transporting supplies such as food, consumables and drilling equipment.
The Scottish Loan Fund initially invested £4m in Fletcher last year to part-fund the acquisition of a third vehicle.
Fletcher’s latest funding is made up of £4.5m from Maven client funds and £1m from the SLF.
Maven partner Jock Gardiner said, “Fletcher Shipping is making the most of the opportunities which exist in the booming oil & gas industry in the North Sea.
“They have firmly established themselves in the market, providing an excellent service to their existing customer base and the resultant demand to charter their high-quality PSVs has led to them being constantly in service.
“The business continues to be ambitious and the purchase of the two new vessels will help them to significantly increase capacity.
“Maven has proved to be a perfect fit for what they are trying to achieve and we are pleased to support this dynamic Scottish SME with its growth plans.”
