Global Ship Lease
Global Ship Lease (GSL) is a containership lessor, publicly traded on the New York Stock Exchange since August 15, 2008 - ticker: GSL.
We are a Marshall Islands Corporation with administrative offices in London, owning a fleet of high quality, well-maintained containerships that are leased out under fixed-rate time charters.
Our mission is to be a preferred provider of quality chartered containership tonnage for top tier liner shipping companies, with a business model focused on generating stable and predictable cash flows.
Our time charters provide a cost effective alternative to direct vessel ownership for our liner shipping customers, allowing them to free up capital and management resources for other strategic needs.
We are well positioned to capitalize upon mid to long-term opportunities within this dynamic space.
On October 29, 2018, Global Ship Lease announced a strategic combination with Poseidon Containers in a stock-for-stock transaction that will double the size of the Company’s fleet of mid-sized and smaller containerships and increase the asset base to over $1.2 billion on a charter-adjusted basis, while introducing latest-generation vessel designs, reducing the fleet age, diversifying the charterer portfolio, and reducing leverage.
