Ship finance refers to investment obtained from financial markets on ship purchase, regardless of whether it is a new build, second hand vessel or other offshore asset. It is a specialist, capital intensive subtopic within corporate finance and it is asset based, as lending risks are mitigated by various forms of collateral, and charter fees serve as the main source of repayment.
