The 2016-built bulker, scheduled to be delivered to the company in November, will be renamed the M/V Stamford Eagle.

Eagle Bulk said that this is the first vessel acquisition for the company in more than 6 years and “reflects management’s renewed commitment to invest in a high-quality fleet renewal and growth strategy within the Supramax/Ultramax segment.”

Featuring a length of 200 meters and a width of 32.2 meters, the 34,447 gross ton ship has a capacity of 77,546 cubic meters.
