Market value of the Capesize dry bulk carrier currently stands at USD 22.47 million, according to information provided by VesselsValue.

The 179,362 dwt Seattle has been working for Geneva-based SwissMarine Services since December 2015, Diana’s data shows.

Acquired by Diana in 2015, the Seattle was built by South Korean shipbuilder Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) in 2011.
