The core of our activities, and the platform on which our other businesses are built, is “project” deals.
Whether it starts with a new building program or with securing a secondhand vessel against an appropriate hire commitment for long period, Jship is involved from the very beginning in negotiating the terms of the charter party and the shipbuilding contract.
Jship boasts a successful track record of concluded project deals, owing to the support of our trusted partners including shipowners, operators (charterers) and shipyards alike.
Sales and Purchase (S&P)
1) Jship is engaged in the straight new building business, and we have helped many of our shipowner friends implement building programs with various shipbuilders in Japan.
Jship is not in a position to act as financier or main contractor, and therefore is flexible to discuss its fees / commissions for a new building contract, depending on the prevailing situation or conditions.
2) For secondhand vessels, rather than trying to solely focus on covering the open market enquiries, Jship is specializing in private deals, handling vessels entrusted by, or meeting requirements of its closely-associated shipowners, including but not limited to the company's shareholders.
More specifically, our shipowners stakeholders will grant us exclusive authority the majority of the time. Jship has already done some secondhand business with several shipbrokers overseas offering vessels "off market" or fixing non-circulated requirements. In this respect, Jship appreciates contact from new foreign peers interested in a similar approach. We welcome vessel offers or requirements and will be happy to discuss with our owner friends for possible conclusion.
Jship's chartering activities are currently centered around period hires of relatively longer durations. Jship has until now fixed these types of charter deals with a number of first-class Japanese operators.
While already tying up with some foreign charterers as well, Jship wants to further bolster such international relations. In fact, for a range of commercial vessels including, but not limited to, bulkers, containerships, pure car carriers, multipurpose vessels, reefers, chemical tankers, etc., Jship is prepared to introduce its Japanese owner friends who are interested in building new ships or purchasing secondhand vessels once chartering conditions are met. Your advice of hire terms, required ship's specifications and so on would always be welcome. Opportunities also exist here for arrangements such as sublets from Jship's closely-related charterers acting as disponent owners, or shipowners having vessels with hire contracts nearing expiry.
Jship is engaged in the consulting business targeting shipping-related entities. We provide useful local information and opinions on a fee basis. Jship also has a rich experience in ship finance, and is prepared to introduce foreign operators capable of satisfying certain conditions to Japanese financiers. Meanwhile, since Jship's offices are conveniently located in Shinbashi, one of Tokyo's business centers, our shipowner friends are utilizing our facilities as their virtual Tokyo branches.
