  1. First­ly, the ves­sel is acquired by a Spe­cial Pur­pose Com­pa­ny (SPC) on cred­it, financed by equi­ty from the shipown­er and debt from a debt lender. SIAF arranges the financ­ing from the insti­tu­tion­al mar­kets for the ship­ping vessels.
  2. The SPC gets the deliv­ery of the ship from the shipbuilder.
  3. The SPC enters into a Char­ter Agree­ment with the Char­ter­er (the ship­ping com­pa­ny), and leas­es the ves­sel to the Char­ter­er on terms and con­di­tions agreed in the Char­ter Agreement.
  4. The Char­ter­er is then required to pay the total amount of the Char­ter Agree­ment in instal­ments to the SPC.
  5. The own­er­ship of the ves­sel at the end of the Char­ter Agree­ment depends on the terms of the Char­ter Agreement.

As part of this process, SIAF also engages in due dili­gence to price the risk and to seek to secure the most com­pet­i­tive terms of financ­ing avail­able on the mar­ket. The com­mer­cial terms for the fund­ing will be nego­ti­at­ed by SIAF on our clien­t’s behalf to pro­tect their best interests.

  1. Time char­ter - involves hir­ing the ves­sel for a spec­i­fied peri­od of time. The SPC bears the risk of marine acci­dents along with main­te­nance of the ves­sel and the crew while the Char­ter­er pays for the oper­at­ing expenses.
  2. Voy­age char­ter - is tak­en up on a voy­age basis where­by the SPC man­ages the ves­sel while the Char­ter­er pays the oper­at­ing expens­es along with the costs for the crew.
  3. Bare­boat char­ter - involves the trans­fer of risk and return of the ves­sel to the Char­ter­er. Hence, at the end of the agree­ment, the Char­ter­er takes full con­trol of the ves­sel, includ­ing legal and finan­cial respon­si­bil­i­ties for it.
  4. Demise char­ter - is a type of bare­boat char­ter with a longer dura­tion. Demise char­ter­ing is com­mon for tankers and bulk carriers.
