Marathon approach

DAO is committed to the shipping industry and to being a loyal partner to our customers. Our young and technically superior fleet ensures that our clients can depend on our vessels for many years to come.

We are long-term partners, not asset players. Our management is conservative, emphasising the importance of quality tonnage and counterparties and a prudent approach to growth.

In close cooperation with charterers and shipyards, we design and build the best ships for our clients’ operations. Because our vessels are time chartered on a long-term basis, they must be built to the highest quality and with the latest innovations for improved efficiency and environmental compliance. Our customers also depend on the highest levels of service when it comes to technical management.

The stable revenue streams from these strategic contracts ensure our solid financial and operational performance.
