WHAT IS A CASH BUYER? - Within the ship recycling industry, companies such as GMS are commonly known as Cash Buyers. A “Cash Buyer” as the name suggests, is an entity that purchases a vessel for “Cash” from the owners and delivers it to a ship recycling yard (Ship Recyclers). Cash Buyers are not brokers. Cash Buyers are PRINCIPALS/TRADERS. Cash Buyers take delivery of vessels on both “delivered” and “as is where is” terms. Business functions performed by a Cash Buyer include sale and purchase, financing (taking title of the vessel against full payment), market research, evaluation (forecasting future prices, demand/supply factors and other relevant business-specific issues) and risk management (underwriting market, operational, performance, currency, demand/supply, and various other risks).

Benefits of a dependable Cash Buyer to Ship Owners:

  • Guidance: since cash buyers do business with yards globally, they are BEST qualified to guide owners on various recycling options
  • Receive intimate knowledge and current state of the individual recycling markets
  • Cash payments instead of payments via Letters of Credit (L/C)
  • Risk mitigation on behalf of the ship owners, especially in cases of a falling market, currency fluctuations, and unexpected legislative and regulatory changes
  • Managing ship owners CSR requirements
  • Ability to propose, guide, and execute green recycling contracts
  • Financial stability to ensure hassle-free completion of agreements
Benefits of a dependable Cash Buyer to Ship Recyclers:
