Sale and Purchase

Since 2000, Compass Maritime has negotiated over 1,000 transactions to buy and sell assets between our Recycling and Sale & Purchase departments, including foreign and domestic vessels, tugs, barges and other maritime assets.

A robust global and domestic network of owners, operators, charterers, banks, lawyers and brokers empowers us to give our clients the most accurate, current information with which to make critical buying and selling decisions.

Our broker team leverages its proprietary information with access to private, local, and open markets — plus its broad knowledge of the maritime sector and extensive contact base — to find the best options for our clients. We’re committed to recommending the best partnerships pairing dependable buyers with reliable sellers.

As intermediaries between buyers and sellers, our team combines over 150 years of knowledge, skills and experience to drive deals.  Our specialist brokering teams work across all major markets from tankers, dry cargo vessels and containerships to tug/barges and specialized maritime assets.

Our access to deep industry intelligence enables us to communicate assessments of vessel specifics, locations, and prices directly to potential buyers and sellers. We maintain a database with technical and commercial details on thousands of available (and off-market) vessels by monitoring:

  • Purchase enquiries
  • Ship transactions
  • Ship sales candidates
  • World and industry events and reporting/news
