What Ship Finance Can Do for You
We finance 50% to 65% of your commercial ocean-going vessels, including tankers, dry freight and container ships, provided they are not more than 15 years old. For new vessels, we offer financing solutions both before and after delivery.
Financing Is Available for the Following Types of Vessel
Dry bulk vessels
Bulk carriers (>15 000 dwt)
Wet gas carriers
Crude oil tankers (>30 000 dwt)
Floaters, jack-ups, FPSO units, and OSVs
We will consider the financing of other offshore vessels on a case-by-case basis. We are unable to finance ferries, cruise ships, livestock carriers, or fishing boats.
