While large shipping asset deals are often financed through the major capital markets, loans for most oilfield service marine equipment are funded with asset based lending. For such asset based lending, a domestic U.S. bank, with some exceptions, will be asking for an appraisal that is compliant with the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP). Due to blatantly false appraisals that caused the collapse of the savings and loan industry in 1988, it became mandatory for real estate appraisers to provide transparent, verifiable and unbiased appraisals of real estate. All major banks now request USPAP complaint appraisals for all assets, including marine equipment.
