The global shipping industry relies on ship brokers to negotiate terms between ship buyers and sellers. They also act as intermediaries between ship owners and those who charter or operate the vessels. The term shipbroking refers to the financial services needed when buying or operating a ship. A team of experienced brokers combined their talents, interests, and specialties to create a multiple service company called NautiSNP.
Financing is the key component of any major transaction. There are several financing options for the purchase of second-hand vessels. New building financing is also possible for storage, warehousing, or an office for chartering boats or starting a new business venture with the newly acquired purchase. Some passenger vessels for sale, for example, are designed to be floating hotels and casinos. A buyer will need a small office to book and organize river cruises.
Legal support services offered include setting up escrow accounts, finalizing needed documentation, company incorporation, and ship registration. Negotiation the terms of a sale can be complicated, especially if the ship is in another country. Brokers have up to thirty years of experience in this specific area. That is important when negotiating a price, or agreeing to terms of purchase.
