Dolfinance "Le Mirabel", 4 avenue des Citronniers, 98000, Monaco
Dolfinance primarily listens and then offers advice and mediation on ship finance in general with an emphasis on financing cruiseships, roro vessels and ferries, LPG and chemical tankers as well as Platform Supply vessels and Anchor Handlers. Financing the cruise industry is a niche we particularly focus on.
Dolfinance has financed a number of very large yachts and can thus assist in financing superyachts over 45 meters l.o.a. With an extensive network in the yachting industry and over USD 400m financed in yachts by Dolfinance’s previous principal, Dolfinance is well positioned to assist owners of top quality yachts in their search for finance.
Dolfinance has a network of private investors, mostly with a maritime background, that are interested in providing mezzanine finance and are keen to invest in promising shipowning companies or individual vessels based on a strong market position, chartercontract or other solid employment.
Mergers and acquisitions: Looking for and finding the right partner for our shipping or cruise clients is always on our mind.
Advice on structuring of financial transactions, feasibility studies and marketing advice in the cruise industry is a specialty of Dolfinance and its associates.
In the 25 years of its existence, Dolfinance has learnt at least one important thing: To listen to and build up a relationship with the client, aiming at understanding the client and anticipating his or her needs. We are not there to sell a product but we are there to provide the client with a tailormade solution.
Our aim is to assist companies in acquiring or building the optimal vessel economically and environmentally and advise on the marketing thereof, especially in the (expedition) cruise, RoRo and ferry sector.

The c.e.o. of Dolfinance; Hugo T. Modderman, has focused all his life on project finance, whether powerplants, battery factories, cement plants, shopping centers, aircraft and ships. A buy-out of the Rotterdam office of what is now DNB created Dolfinance in 1988, now celebrating 25 years of existence. Initially based in Rotterdam, Dolfinance has been acting out of Monaco since 1997. The first ship financed was the cruiseship “Bon Vivant” in 1976 ! Hugo is actively involved with Marine Money and the Seatrade organization in organizing or lecturing on cruise and yacht finance. Dolfinance entertains an excellent relationship with those European banks that are active in marine finance and has a long history with banks such as DVB, NIBC, ABNAMRO, ING, Investec, KFW and a number of French banks.
