ABOUT US


Albert Mortensen founded Albert Mortensen Shipbrokers (AMS) in London and Belize in 1990. Early in his career, he practiced maritime law in several international and European firms. After that, he established shipbroking outlets in Torshavn and Copenhagen and gained invaluable experience and an excellent reputation for selling ships for the fishing industry. Having invested all his knowledge, contacts and experience in the new project, Albert built a successful, highly motivated team of professionals capable of solving the most complex tasks in a dynamic market.

For more than 30 years, AMS has been developing its unique system of work in the sale, purchase and financing of fishing vessels, newbuildings and fishing–related consultancy. That allows us to be among the industry leaders and accurately, quickly, and reasonably solve our clients’ problems.


Over the years, AMS diversified into S+P for offshore support vessels and tugs, MPPs, container carriers, bulk carriers, tankers and chartering. Green ship recycling projects, dry–cargo chartering and transhipment projects make the bulk of our day-to-day activity now. But we will never forget our roots, so fishing is still one of our significant areas of expertise.

Services we provide for our clients:

SALE & PURCHASE

First-class service for buyers and sellers of all types of tonnage with special emphasis on fishing vessels. We will find and offer you the option that best meets your needs or we will market your vessel worldwide in the best possible way. We arrange transactions professionally, working on confidential basis and find a common language with regulators in any country of the world.


NEWBUILDING

We work with the best and world-renowned naval architects and shipyards all over the world to offer our customers a ship that fully meets their needs and built quickly, with high-quality and at a fair price. Finance for such projects can also be arranged by our partner-banks working in conjunction with export credit agencies.


TRANSHIPMENT PROJECTS

Limited port infrastructure in some places around the world doesn’t allow for large vessels to call those ports and hence transhipment of cargoes (STS) is required in some places for export or import cargoes. We can help our clients to design and run such a transhipment project in many locations around the world. We can source all the required equipment and assets for these projects for purchase or charter and our Port Captains, Superintendents and other staff are always ready to help our clients around the world.
