FINANCIAL ENGINEERING OF A SUCCESSFUL MAMMOTH: AN ESSENTIAL CHALLENGE

Methods and net costs of financing the Super Ocean Carrier are critical inputs in the creation of an economical vessel. The capital cost aspect now outweighs, both in gross amount and sensitivity, the crew/operating features and the elements of performance optimization which have classically been the concern of the engineering disciplines. Available capital costs will determine where Super Oil Carriers are built. This paper enumerates various alternatives in the Financing decisions in businessman's perspective, and informs on the emerging of rate, term and government involvement which are pertinent today worldwide. A scenario is presented of the interests which must be successfully coordinated to marshall the funds for a mammoth vessel program from conception, through construction and into long term operation.
