Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward Looking Statements

This press  release may  contain  forward looking  statements.  These
statements are  based upon  various assumptions,  many of  which  are
based, in  turn, upon  further  assumptions, including  Ship  Finance
management's examination  of  historical operating  trends.  Although
Ship Finance  believes that  these assumptions  were reasonable  when
made, because  assumptions  are  inherently  subject  to  significant
uncertainties and contingencies which are difficult or impossible  to
predict  and  are  beyond  its  control,  Ship  Finance  cannot  give
assurance that  it will  achieve  or accomplish  these  expectations,
beliefs or intentions.

Important factors that,  in the  Company's view,  could cause  actual
results  to   differ  materially   from  those   discussed  in   this
presentation include the strength of world economies and  currencies,
general market  conditions  including fluctuations  in  charter  hire
rates and vessel values, changes in demand in the tanker market as  a
result of changes  in OPEC's  petroleum production  levels and  world
wide oil consumption and storage, changes in the Company's  operating
expenses including bunker  prices, dry-docking  and insurance  costs,
changes in governmental  rules and  regulations or  actions taken  by
regulatory authorities, potential  liability from  pending or  future
litigation, general domestic and international political  conditions,
potential disruption of shipping routes due to accidents or political
events, and other important  factors described from  time to time  in
the reports filed by  the Company with  the United States  Securities
and Exchange Commission.
