Athens-based shipowner DryShips is keeping busy with fleet expansion as it has taken delivery of two second-hand ships this week.

Namely, a 82,129 deadweight tons Kamsarmax drybulk carrier built in 2014 has been delivered to the company earlier this week. The Kamsarmax was followed by the delivery of a 320,105 deadweight tons very large crude carrier (VLCC) built in 2011.

Further details on the ships’ specifications have not been revealed, apart from the fact that both ships will be employed in the spot market.

Since the beginning of this year, DryShips has taken delivery of nine vessels and expects to take delivery of eight more by the end of the year.

Once all deliveries are completed, the company’s fleet will be comprised of 46 vessels, including 22 bulkers, 6 offshore support vessels, comprising 2 platform supply and 4 oil spill recovery vessels, four very large gas carriers, three tankers, and one VLCC.
