Höegh Tracer Delivered, Starts 12-Year Charter

Oslo-listed Ocean Yield ASA has taken delivery of the Pure Car Truck Carrier (PCTC) Höegh Tracer of 8,500 car capacity from Chinese shipbuilder Xiamen Shipbuilding Industry Co. Ltd.

After being delivered from the shipyard today, the vessel commenced a 12 years “hell and high water” bareboat charter to Höegh Autoliners, the company said.

Höegh Tracer is the third in a series of six Post Panamax vessels under the New Horizon design that Höegh Autoliners will take delivery of within this year.

Featuring a deck space of 71,400 square meters and a carrying capacity of 8,500 car equivalent units, the vessel is one of the world’s largest PCTCs.

Following its maiden voyage from East Asia to Europe, the car carrier will thereafter sail from Europe back to East Asia via Africa and Oceania.
