Although Universal Marine is a young company (founded in 2004), the history of our modern shipping business dates back to 1982 and we take pride in many years of experience and proven ship purchasing, management and selling prowess.

Post 2001, new fiscal guidelines concerning Dutch limited partnerships (CVs) came into effect. We were quick to recognise the outstanding potential these offered, not only to allow our shipping
company to flourish, but also to investors seeking favourable returns. Our company is entirely independent and is in no way affiliated with shipyards, recruitment agents or charterers.

To date approximately 345 million euros have been invested in new ships, more than 134 million of which has been brought in as limited partner capital contributions by almost 11,000 investors. This makes us one of the largest players in the Dutch shipping-CV market.
