Contract; We draft a buying or selling agreement for the involved parties containing details on delivery, delivery date, financing and other relevant issues.
Inspection; We supervise technical inspections of hulls on shore by appraisal agencies or safety inspections by the Inspectorate for Transport, Public Works and Water management. We also supervise testing of the main motor (bow propeller, generators etc.)
Appraisal; We order a complete report of the ship made by an official and independent appraiser including a market evaluation.
