The Nave Galactic was purchased for $51.5 million, as part of the three VLCCs acquired in November 2013.

Navios Acquisition also reported that the Shinyo Navigator, a 300,549 dwt VLCC built in 1996, was sold for approximately $17.4 million. The Shinyo Navigator was part of the collateral package securing the 8.125% First Priority Ship Mortgage Notes due 2021.
