Greek owner of dry bulk vessels Diana Shipping has taken delivery of M/V Astarte, a 2013-built Kamsarmax bulker, from compatriot shipping company Thenamaris. 

The 81,513 dwt Astarte, previously known as Seatrust, was bought for USD 22.6 million in late April, according to data provided by VesselsValue.

Last month, Diana’s board of directors approved the acquisition of three vessels including Astarte.

With a gross tonnage of 43,500 tons, the bulk carrier features a length of 229 meters and a width of 32.3 meters.

Astarte, which flies the flag of Malta, was built by South Korean shipbuilder Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering (DSME).

Including the newly delivered ship, Diana’s fleet currently comprises 50 dry bulk vessels with a total carrying capacity of around 5.8 million dwt and an average age of 7.86 years.

The company also expects to take delivery of one Post-Panamax bulker by the end of May 2017.
