Seanergy Maritime Takes Second Capesize

Greek dry bulk shipping company Seanergy Maritime Holdings has taken delivery of the second of two Capesizes acquired in September 2016.

The 178,978 dwt vessel, built in 2010 by Hyundai Heavy Industries in South Korea, was renamed to M/V Knightship.

The first Capesize in the series, the M/V Lordship, was delivered to the company earlier this month.

Seaenergy Maritime bought the two Capesizes for a gross purchase price of USD 20.75 million per vessel. According to data provided by VesselsValue, the ships in question were ER Bayern and ER Bavaria.

Stamatis Tsantanis, CEO of Seanergy, said: “With the delivery of M/V Knightship, we successfully completed our acquisition plan for 2016. We expect to continue the implementation of our business plan and grow our fleet even further. We are actively monitoring the market for acquisition opportunities of quality tonnage.”

Seanergy Maritime currently owns a fleet of ten dry bulk carriers, consisting of eight Capesizes and two Supramaxes, with a combined cargo-carrying capacity of approximately 1.5 million dwt and an average fleet age of about 7.9 years.
