We will provide the service of settlements, where we will create a buyers contract and take care of all necessary documentation for a sale. Both with regards to leasing companies and ships registries.


Valuation of vessels, concessions, and whole shipping companies. We have several fixed contracts for shipping companies and financial institutions.

About us

Ship brokerage is a matter of trust. If you choose to give us your assignment, we will work for your interests when you want to sell vessels or vessels and rights, according to high ethical standards and business practices.

There is no typical trade. Each purchase, selling and contracting process is different. From a process start, a large number of phones, emails, contract proposals and negotiations remain before the trade is completed. With us as a broker you are safe, both as a buyer and a seller. We coordinate bids and countermeasures. We arrange for fixed agreements on price, form of settlement, delivery time and responsibility for the buyer and seller. We arrange inspections, make sure all papers are in order, and draw up contracts between the parties. On the whole – we keep the threads from the process from start to finish. We work, mainly, on the “no cure, no pay” principle. Of course, all information we receive is treated confidentially.
