Marine Leasing and Financing

Apple Capital Group have completed in excess of $10 billion of maritime transactions.
Apple Capital Group’s Marine does not aim to compete in the same segment as it’s affiliate Tiger Group Investments, involved as founder and owner in one of the largest publicly listed container lessors globally (NYSE:SSW), as well as one of the largest shipping funds, co-sponsored by The Carlyle Group.

In the maritime segment Apple Capital Group’s typical transaction involves $10 million of equity or less, and the underlying equipment is usually smaller vessels or barges, often specialty equipment, subject to leases with a remaining term of no more than seven years. Recent transactions involve international as well as domestic lessees and sale/leaseback counterparts.

Unlike many lessors we have great flexibility as to structure, having completed straightforward acquisitions as well as forward purchases, residual options, and unsecured positions. Our flexibility allows us to look at all types of equipment, and although our main focus is on equipment that is less than 20 years old at lease expiry, we can consider older equipment and to scrap opportunities.

Apple Capital Group has experience in providing equipment loans and leases in a variety of markets within the Commercial Marine segment such as:
Tugs including Ship Docking, Line Haul, Anchor Handling, etc.
Barges including Dry Bulk Cargo, Liquid and Pressure
Dinner and Excursion Vessels including Tourist, Whale Watching, etc.
Ferry and other Passenger Transportation
Near Coastal/Inland Freighters and Tankers
Offshore and Platform Supply Vessels
Bareboat Charters

Flexible Finance Options:
New vessel including financing during construction
Used vessel purchase finance
Engine repower finance including engines/gensets, materials and shipyard labor
Vessel refinance for individual and fleet
