Although Universal Marine is a young company (founded in 2004), the history of our modern shipping business dates back to 1982 and we take pride in many years of experience and proven ship purchasing, management and selling prowess.


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.
Our current fleet consists of newbuilds and second hand vessels and we continuously scan the global market for the most attractive price/quality ratio.
