Our extensive experience has taught us that a ship’s purchase price, whether it be new or used, is one of the determining factors for a healthy return on investment.

Although we do not rule out the possibility of purchasing an already sailing ship, our current fleet consists entirely of newly constructed vessels and we continuously scan the global market for the most attractive price/quality ratio. The Far East, including China, currently holds the strongest cards, and many of our ships are built there. A dedicated team of Universal Marine inspectors supervise all construction work, on site, ensuring the highest possible quality standards.

Once the shipyard has delivered a vessel, its commercial life starts in earnest. Our fleet is geared especially to meet the demands of the rapidly expanding global transportation market. Our ships are ideal to be used as feeders (shipping containers from the world’s largest harbours to smaller ones), or as intercontinental carriers operating a regular service.
