Maritime Investing

Maritime investing (or maritime crowdinvesting) involves investments in shipbuilding or shipping operations. It can be both equity (ship co-ownership) and debt-based (lending to a shipowner). In equity-based maritime investing, you receive dividends from the profits generated by the ship and participate in the possible increase (or decrease) in ship value when it is sold. Loan-based maritime investing works like any business loan, but often it comes with the ship as collateral.
