We are known as a people company that runs great ships for ourselves and for our partners. We fundamentally believe that good performance starts from building good ships and le to manage them effectively.

Amongst our Group's key strengths, the following are particularly relevant:

  • Management of a modern and diverse fleet of bulk carriers and tankers based on experienced company trained marine personnel.
  • Long standing partnerships with charterers, shipyards, financial institutions and shipping related organisations.
  • Business model that generates a stable cash flow , a strong balance sheet for growth and protection from market volatility.
