With one of the world’s leading trade fairs for the maritime industry, SMM in Hamburg this week, VesselsValue (VV) has put together an infographic looking at the best performing German owners since 2017 SMM. By comparing the every German owners' fleet value on the first day of SMM 2017 against today's fleet value, we can see the German fleets which have grown the most in value and in total number of owned vessels.
