Greece-based shipowner TMS Tankers has decided to expand its fleet as it purchased an Aframax tanker Nissos Anafi from its compatriot Kyklades Maritime, according to VesselsValue.
The 115,700 dwt ship fetched a price of USD 29.1 million, slightly less than its market value of USD 29.7 million.
Built in 2012 by South Korea’s Samsung Heavy Industries, the tanker features a length of 249 meters and a width of 43.8 meters.
Once delivered to its new owner, Nissos Anafi will be a part of TMS Tankers’ fleet of 35 tankers.
Besides its live fleet, the company has 17 newbuildings on order at South Korean and Chinese shipyards, all of which are scheduled for delivery in 2017.
