We are a middle sized shipowner, and we are considering to build a new series of ships. Technically we know what we want, but the financing part is the hardest. Our bank and the shipyard we are eyeing have some possibilities, but the remaing 20% still is a problem. Thanks to Marstrat we could make the deal at the end of the day.
