ABOUT

Bright Cook & Co is a privately owned company with its main subsidiary being active in Ship Sale and Purchase (S&P). Founded in April 1987 by two partners, Richard Bright and Charles Cook, the Company has grown steadily but solidly over the years having experienced the rise and fall of the Shipping Market more than once!

The Company enjoys an enviable reputation as one of London's leading Shipbroking houses especially in the Container and Gas ship markets in addition to the traditional Bulk Carrier and Tanker sectors where the Company also has a strong track record. The Company has also been involved in a substantial number of landmark Cruise ship transactions.

The core focus of our attention today remains simply the provision of top quality service given on an individual and personal level to our valued clients around the world for the New Building, Chartering and Sale and Purchase of all types of Vessels, including substantial sales for the inevitable recycling with companies recognised for their green credentials.

The majority of our business is handled 'off market' and in a very confidential manner including complex transactions involving long term Employment, Finance and leasing with some of our projects attracting particular attention from investors worldwide.

The Company firmly believes in maintaining a discreet and low profile, reflecting also the calibre of its loyal Customer base without whom our success would not have been possible.
