Damen Financial Services and Siemens Financial Services announce vessel financing

In a landmark partnership, Damen Financial Services (DFS) and Siemens Financial Services (SFS) have joined forces to establish a new facility for vessel financing solutions: Damen Ship Lease (DSL).

The DSL facility is now one of the funds of Damen Ship Lease Cooperation which is managed by DFS. It is designed to provide current and prospective ship owners with the ability to expand their fleets by enabling them to acquire state-of-the-art vessels using flexible financing options. 

This strategic alliance combines Damen’s extensive expertise in maritime solutions with Siemens Financial Services’ experience in financing the maritime industry. The two organisations also share a commitment to advancing the maritime sector through sustainable and client-focused services.

The lease options offered allow operators in the highly competitive maritime industry to acquire vessels with the latest technology on board, enabling them to renew their fleets to become more sustainable and efficient. Financing is specifically available for workboats such as tugs, fast crew suppliers, Multi Cats, tenders, small ferries and waterbuses. 

 “We are pleased to be collaborating with the world leading Damen Group to drive their business forward,” adds Julian Hobbs, CEO, Siemens Financial Services.

“We already finance a number of Damen-built vessels for other shipowners, making this partnership a natural progression. Our expertise in the leasing and marine markets, combined with ourcommitment to customer service, enabled us to structure this finance arrangement.

“Our Marine Finance offering has come a long way in a short time and having partners like Damen points to a bright future.”

Damen Shipyards Group has been in operation for over 95 years and offers maritime solutions worldwide, through design, construction, conversion and repair of ships and ship components.
