who we are
Established in 2013 by the Navig8 Group to capitalize on the significant changes in the petrochemical industry, Navig8 Chemical Tankers Inc is an international shipping company focused on the maritime transportation of Chemicals worldwide. We are having one of the leading platforms in the Chemical shipping trade with a large fleet of 32 high specification Chemical Tankers that allow us to capitalize on the significant growth in the production and seaborne transportation of Chemicals. Our vessels are employed in the spot-market oriented Commercial Pools of Navig8 Group, one of the largest operators of Chemical Tankers globally, in order to benefit from increases in freight rates during a recovery and to maximize their utilization. We believe we are well positioned to grow and consolidate the fragmented Chemical Tanker market.
Our Initial Fleet of 32 modern, fuel-efficient vessels, which commenced delivery back in January 2015, have now been fully delivered and are operating under the Navig8 Chemical Pools. The fleet comprises eighteen 37,295 dwt Interline-9001 coated Chemical Tankers, eight 25,000 dwt stainless steel Chemical Tankers, four IMO II 49,000 dwt Interline-9001 coated Chemical Tankers and two 49,080 dwt epoxy-coated Chemical Tankers.
Shipyard quality is particularly important in the Chemical Tanker sector and all of the vessels in our Initial Fleet were built by leading Japanese and Korean manufacturers, including Hyundai Mipo Dockyard, Kitanihon Shipbuilding, Fukuoka Shipbuilding, STX Offshore & Shipbuilding and Hyundai Vinashin Shipyard.
