Concordia Damen has launched a Capital Fund targeting the purchase of new and used vessels in the inland transportation sector.

The newly launched BesteVaer Capital Fund is aimed at stimulating business in the inland waterways sector.

Enabling easy access to the fund and opportunities has rolled out a Business Plan Tool on its website to offer its customers the possibility of having a customised business calculated for a motor vessel of its stock database.

The resulting plan is specifically designed to serve as the first assessment of the financing of a vessel. Following the data capture on the website, the client receives the customised business plan by email. Should the financing requirements of the banks not be fully met, the Business Plan Tool will provide information on additional financing options which can be provided by BesteVaer Capital Fund.

 “With this move we have added value to our solutions, providing our clients with a helpful financing tool. This will facilitate easier purchasing of new and used inland shipping vessels from our stock portfolio and help provide stimulation to the inland shipping industry,” said CEO Concordia Damen Chris Kornet  

Concordia Damen is a shipbroker and manages a fleet of inland navigation vessels. Since the founding of the company, Concordia Damen has delivered more than 140 vessels with very different specifications to shipowners in the Netherlands and all over the world.

Damen operates 36 shipyards in 18 countries.
