We recognise that each client and charterer has individual goals and requirements.  Shipping markets, by their nature, are diverse and highly segmented.  As brokers, we have the expertise, experience, contacts and support structure to appreciate the diversity and find the optimal chartering solution to make deals happen.

This means bringing together a company with a cargo to ship and a company with a vessel able to transport it.  It also involves  bringing together buyers and sellers of ships both secondhand and newbuilding.

  • Tankers
  • Niche Specialised Markets
    • Reefer

Our Word Our Bond



Container ships play a significant role in the shipping business, carrying high value cargoes of manufactured goods all over the world, accounting for more than 60% by value of global seaborne trade. Our focus is on small to medium size market 500-2000 teu vessel capacity both on short and longer charters.

Dry Cargo

Dry Cargo

Dry Cargo chartering is the largest of the shipping markets.  It is also the most segmented and complex market involving more than three billion tonnes of cargo each year.  It includes the movement of ore, grain, coal, aggregates, fertilisers and break bulk commodities.  In Ireland, we transport over 25million tonnes of dry bulk cargo every year.
