Since our first sale in 1983, Marcon has sold/chartered over 1,515 vessels and barges between companies located in the U.S. and worldwide. We specialize in the towing, marine construction and offshore petroleum industries. Although our primary focus as shipbrokers is in the sale, purchase and charter markets, we have also assisted many companies with valuations of individual vessels and fleets, as well as evaluating capital acquisitions, market rates and feasibility of trade routes.
