This paper provides a critical review of the ship investment literature in the last 30 years following 43 journal articles and book chapters. The review is based on a framework that synthesizes and integrates the literature in terms of timing and viability of shipping investment, raising of funds and managing the investment. Based on this review, a number of promising directions for future research are laid out through the identification of the major contributions and the progress that has been made so far with regards to the broader thematic area of shipping investments, as well as through highlighting important knowledge gaps that could potentially serve as a research agenda for the future.
