Now in its 35th year, Marine Money Week is the largest annual gathering of the most active dealmakers in global ship finance.
It is always an extremely productive, efficient and enjoyable series of days in New York City. The days are filled with private meetings, chance encounters and the industry’s most engaging, high level plenary sessions.
The nights are busy with drinks, dinners and deal making all over the amazing island of Manhattan. There is no more time or cost efficient way to develop key relationships and market intelligence than Marine Money Week.
Relied upon by ship owners, financiers, investors, ship managers, brokers, lawyers and accountants for the past 30 years, Marine Money International is constantly bridging the gap between ship owners and the international capital markets.
Our publications, forums, books and other services are driven by a set of common goals: to make you money, save you money and provide you with access to investment opportunities and capital.
Marine Money is the Editors annual celebration of the Best Deals of the year. There were some extraordinary transactions accomplished demonstrating not only strategic value creation on the part of ship owners and their team’s world- wide, but superior execution and creativity on the part of the winning banks, investment banks, investors and advisors who populate the winning pages which follow. We hope reading about the best ideas in capital formation serve you well.

We had a pleasure of speaking to a few people in the industry, and was told that the shipping industry in making a comeback at a very fast pace. Most of the World sanctioning Russia with not allowing them to sell their gas, to most of the European countries, so a lot of gas is coming from USA, and as far as Australia, so its increasing the business for many tankers.
It was truly a great event, high level people from all over the World in attendance from the Marine industry, Bankers and many more in one room, putting great deals together. In the three-day period.
