Ship & Marine Finance

We provide finance to purchase ships. Typically we fund up to 50% of the purchase of ships more than 10 years old. We work with established (more than 2 years of trading) companies looking to expand. Our customers are experienced traders who own or have previously owned a vessel.

We also finance shipping related costs. Freight, running costs, fuel can all be financed by Credebt Shipping.

Based in Dublin, Ireland, and on Greenwich meantime, our team delivers world-class global ship finance for operators and charterers. Our shipping clients are based primarily in Europe, Africa, and America. We will also engage selectively with clients in other parts of the world. Our Credebt® Shipping team has extensive shipping knowledge and understands the challenges within the shipping industry.

The Engagement Process

After making contact with Trade Credebt®, an appointment will be arranged with a trade Specialist. Typically, this is a 30 minute call. The Specialist will get a clear understanding of your business and your finance requirements. Afterward your requirements will be summarised in an email. Upon confirmation of our understanding the Specialist will ask for documentation to support your application.

Upon receipt of the requested documentation the Specialist will prepare a proposal for the Trade Desk. If the Trade Desk agrees in principal with the finance being sought, they will issue a Revolving Purchase Agreement [RPA] quotation. This is a single page document.

The RPA is a document that is unique to Trade Credebt®. 

A team member will then call you to explain this document in detail. You may then confirm the finance request, submit the online application and begin trading.
