WAYS TO FINANCE SUPERTANKERS

The various methods of financing ships are discussed, with particular emphasis placed on the financing of very large oil tankers. The traditional methods are shown to be inadequate, and other means are discussed which take into account the larger proportions of debt which result from the construction of these large vessels. Some sources of United States government financing are given, and alternatives to this, such as support from major oil companies, are also discussed. Advantages of bareboat charters and long maturity terms, as well as factors such as taxes, leasing, and competition are covered.
