This blog is maintained by Karatzas Marine Advisors & Co., a shipping finance advisory, vessel valuations and appraisals, and ship brokerage firm based in Manhattan, New York. The blog is intended as a general forum on all matters maritime and nautical. Although many of the topics and areas of interest discussed are commercially related, this blog will generously acknowledge topics of maritime history and tradition, marine engineering and naval architecture, politics and international trade. After all, shipping is not only the industry of trade, but also the industry that has been bridging oceans, cultures and cultures since the time of recorded history.
