Marine finance

Funding your fleet

Many companies use finance as an essential ingredient for driving business growth. From providing funding to help expand their fleets, to everyday business solutions to support development, our marine finance team offers a valuable range of services.

If you’re registered in the UK and are an established business, typically with five vessels or more, find out how we could help you.

Why choose marine finance?*

  • Loans are available from £500,000 to £50 million
  • You could access up to 70% loan to value of your whole business fleet if we're the sole provider of finance
  • Loans available in all major currencies
  • Various loan terms available (up to 12 years)
  • Repayments tailored to your cashflow receipts and affordability.

* Subject to status and eligibility. Please refer to important information below.

Please note that security may be required. Any asset used as security will be at risk if you break the agreement and may be sold to repay your debt.

Helping you finance a range of commercial vessels:

  • Workboats
  • Crew transfer vessels
  • Tugs
  • Barges
  • Offshore support vessels
  • Ships under 10,000gt.

Why we're different

Supported by our experts, you could raise the finance needed to purchase one or more vessels. With finance available across your fleet, we could lend up to 70% of the value of the full fleet (if we are the sole provider of marine finance to the business) – allowing you to potentially utilise the equity within the vessels you own as a partial contribution towards any additional vessel purchase.

Giving you the confidence to expand

We like to work with our marine clients to discover their ambitions for the future. By doing so, we can not only help you work through solutions for today, but by looking at your business as a whole, we can show you options that could help you move closer to your long term goals.
