Maritime Banking

Our Maritime Team Knows Troller from Trawler

Maritime banking focuses on meeting the specific needs of the maritime industry, including commercial fishing and seafood production, ship and boat building, maritime logistics and shipping, repair and maintenance, passenger transportation, and the many other small businesses that help the industry thrive.  

Our local team has over 50 years of combined experience working in the maritime industry with a deep understanding of the working waterfront. We are better prepared to serve the needs of our maritime customers due to a deep understanding of the intricacies of maritime commerce, including business cycles, distribution channels, equipment and services. As a trusted financial partner, our team closely monitors industry changes for opportunities and financial solutions. 

“I transferred my business accounts to First Fed because of their team. Everyone has been so responsive and knowledgeable, which is a refreshing change. It’s a real benefit to pick up the phone and be able to talk to Scott about business ideas and opportunities.”  
- Shon Landon, Captain and Owner of Landon Fisheries
