What we do

Maritime Industry

The maritime industry is a US$1 trillion market, growing faster than global GDP and responsible for almost 90% of world trade (UNCTAD). Small / medium size owners control ~60% of the global fleet in number of vessels. They include companies with strong management skills, successful performance and market position. Fleet renewals and new environmental regulations accelerate the need for new ship investments and create growth potential which is faster than global GDP.  

How can we help you

Our Strategy

Our strategy is to buy high quality assets at attractive prices and build a portfolio of long-term contracts through sale & leaseback transactions in the maritime sector.

Long term charter coverage provides stable and predictable cash flows with inflation protection from real assets with low market correlation.

We aim to combine attractive returns with responsible investments, positive ESG screening and active engagements with lessees, focusing on fuel efficient “eco” ships.

We target attractive risk adjusted returns with upside and quarterly cash distributions to equity holders.

Our Preferred Assets

All vessels should preferably be modern, “eco”, built 2010 or later at a reputable shipyard.
