Gibson’s valuation desk is a trusted impartial provider of certified valuations for leading shipping banks, maritime courts, underwriters, claims adjusters, oil majors and ship owners, amongst others. We have also undertaken numerous independent expert witness cases for arbitrations.

We value all conventional ship types, including bulk carrier, general cargo, multi-purpose, containership, crude, product and chemical tankers as well as gas carriers (LPG/LNG). At Gibson we always strive to tailor our service to our customer’s needs and as a result we also value other ship types, such as offshore vessels, upon consideration.
