Establishment of a maritime asset investment platform

The Schulte Group and DEVK, one of Germany’s well-known insurance groups have established Navigo Shipholding AG (Navigo), a maritime asset investment platform for institutional investors.

The long-term objective of Navigo is to build up a mixed portfolio of vessels, predominantly under long-term charter agreements, providing good visibility of future earnings and thereby ensuring a calculable long-term steady yield. Navigo has been established to offer institutional investors a capable, competitive and not least distinctly different investment alternative.

The initial investment portfolio comprises two vessels, a Service Operation Vessel (SOV) for windfarms with a long-term charter to GE (General Electric), currently under construction, and a 12,000 cbm gas carrier (semi-ref LPG) operated in the Unigas Pool.

Navigo is directed by Mr. Ole Daus-Petersen, who has more than 25 years of experience in the shipping industry, and Andreas Spott (Investor Relations), who is working as Manager Project Finance for Bernhard Schulte GmbH & Co. KG and is seconded to Navigo.
