Fleet expansion requires a sound strategy. When considering a newbuilding you will be faced with some important decisions:

Which is the right design? Which is the right shipyard? When is the right timing?

From our knowledge, experience and close ties with shipyards, we can guide you in choosing the right design for your project as well as the most appropriate shipyard based on your requirements. We deal in the shipping markets every day, so we can help you in finding the right time to go ahead with a new project.

Financing issues may have to be considered. We may offer our assistance through our established good, direct links to several local and international banks, trading houses and shipyards.

Contracting a newbuilding is a complex project. It is our job to make it as straightforward and transparent as possible. For this reason, we have teamed up with an ex-shipyard manager. Over the years we have successfully concluded newbuilding projects with reliable and experienced partners overseeing the supervision.

There are many issues to be considered and it goes without saying that we advise and support our clients from beginning to end of a project.


Whether buying or selling a vessel, you want to obtain the best possible terms and price in the market. How can you achieve this? You need to have the latest, most accurate and true information – before the rest of the market becomes aware of it.

This is where we come in – information is our business. We know how to handle information and when absolute discretion is required.

Our close ties to shipowners, KG houses and banks give us an edge when developing ideas and structuring new deals. Our vast experience in negotiating and drafting contracts together with our creative approach allow us to set up and execute lucrative sales transactions on your behalf.










Do you really know what your asset is worth right now? Shipping markets are cyclical in nature, so your asset is constantly changing in value.

We can advise you accordingly and provide you with an official desktop valuation for your vessel. We provide Owners and Banks with our professional valuations on a regular basis.





Also known to many as “Demolition”, it can be a difficult subject. Due to the nature of the business, it is vital to have a reliable cash buyer with references evidencing a good track record as well as a willing and realistic seller.

We work very closely with a few selected cash buyers with whom we have established direct, secure and stable channels over the years having successfully structured many recycling deals. Our cash buyers are able to work on an as is where is basis or a delivered basis.
