Greek shipping company Conbulk Shipping SA has decided to dispose of its two Handysize containerships, sending them to a shipbreaking yard in India and another unknown yard, VesselsValue’s data shows.

The ships in question are the 23,000 dwt Cresco and the 22,400 dwt Sonoma and they were sold for USD 335/ldt (light displacement) and USD 341/ldt.

Market value of the first vessel stands at USD 2.45 million and of the second at USD 2.57 million.

The 1,728 TEU Cresco and the 1,684 TEU Sonoma were built by Poland-based shipbuilder Stocznia Szczecin Nowa in 1996 and 1997, respectively.

Apart from the two sold vessels, Conbulk’s fleet is currently comprised of nine containerships – six Handysize vessels and three Sub-Panamaxes, according to VesselsValue’s data.
