Clarksons is the world’s leading provider of integrated shipping services, bringing our connections and experience to an international client base.

No organisation can match the breadth, talents or track record of the Clarksons broking capability - which is simply the most respected and successful in the maritime sector. Our brokers bring together companies with cargo to ship (charterers) and those with vessels capable of shipping it (owners). In short, our expertise helps make the transaction happen. Our clients move dry cargoes (iron ore, coal, grains etc) and wet cargoes (crude and refined oil and oil products), raw materials and finished products, gases and oils, chemicals and molasses... goods that any school student would recognise and many more that they would not. We transact business in every size of ship - from small units to those so large that they could not only swallow several football pitches, but complete stadia as well. These vessels criss-cross the oceans on the world's great arteries of trade, with every nautical mile managed and overseen by our team of around 1400 professionals in 46 offices worldwide.

From derivative products that have been pioneered at Clarksons to full investment banking services and tailored debt solutions, we also provide best-in-class financial services. Our role is to help clients identify and manage risk, fund transactions and bring deals to life that would often be impossible via more traditional routes.

Our research team is respected worldwide as the most authoritative provider of intelligence on global shipping and the offshore sector.

ESNA is an independent ship design company for high-speed vessels. We specialize on air cushioned catamaran/Surface Effect Ships (SES), where we have unique world-leading competence. Our strategy is to complement yards with the special air cushion systems and equipment, allowing any yard to build safe, cost efficient and reliable Surface Effect Ships.

ESNA develops and realizes vessel designs with outstanding performance, seakeeping and comfort, higher speed and with lower power consumption. A SES has the performance of a larger conventional vessel, so that she can replace larger vessels while providing similar performance. This allows for even greater fuel reduction and lower emissions for a greener future.

We have grown steadily and today, we are the leading supplier of high speed, lightweight composite air-cushion catamarans and components for a variety of advanced applications in maritime, offshore and naval industries worldwide.

Our history of more than two decades of delivering pioneering naval vessels has set the ground-work for expanding into world-class commercial craft. Based on the same proven air-cushion catamaran and Surface Effect Ship technology, but tailored to suit crew transfer applications in Renewables, Oil & Gas, and Defense industries is our latest WAVECRAFT TM series of new generation Crew Transfer Vessels.

These revolutionary craft guarantee rapid transit time, excellent seakeeping and passenger comfort,unique boarding capabilities, superior fuel economy and reduced environmental footprint. In a class of their own, WAVECRAFT TM vessels are a competitive alternative not only to other crew transfer crafts, but also to helicopters.
