The Sale and Purchase division provides a complete service from the contracting of New Buildings through to second-hand sales and demolition.

Our depth of experience in diverse market environments allows us to support our clients at all levels of their decision making.

New Building

The company has long-established relationships with the principal yards of the world engaged in the construction of oil tankers, gas carriers, bulk carriers, container ships, passenger ships, and other specialised vessels. We liaise very closely with all the yards in Japan, South Korea and China and our offices in Shanghai, as well as our Korean New Build desk in London, provide us with the very latest market information and prices in this sector.


This business is the heart of the division’s activities and covers the full range of ship types. The location of the Sale & Purchase division alongside our two chartering divisions encourages close co-operation between all departments and leads to frequent project transactions involving sales and long term charters on oil tankers, gas carriers and bulk carriers.


This highly specialised activity completes the full service role. Galbraith’s continued activity in this sector enables us to constantly keep clients well informed of market prices and yard space in the major demolition markets of the Indian sub-continent, the Far East and Turkey.


Over the years Galbraith’s has maintained its position as a leading ship valuer acting on behalf of banks, insurance companies, solicitors and P&I clubs and is a founder member of The Ship Valuation Panel.
