Maersk Tankers, part of Denmark’s shipping conglomerate Maersk, has disposed of two older MR1 tankers, VesselsValue’s data shows.

The ships in question are the 2000-built Maersk Rapier and the 2002-built Maersk Rhode Island, both constructed at CSSC OME shipyard in China.

As disclosed by VesselsValue, the 35,000 dwt Maersk Rapier and the 34,800 dwt Maersk Rhode Island were sold to unnamed parties for USD 6.5 million and USD 8.5 million, respectively.

With a gross tonnage of around 22,180 tons, each of the ships has a length of 171 meters and a width of 27 meters.

“We can confirm that we have reached an agreement to sell Maersk Rapier. The vessel will be delivered to the new owner in the near future. The other vessel can not be confirmed,” a representative from Maersk Tankers told World Maritime News.

In 2016, Maersk Tankers said that it plans to replace approximately 20 percent of its fleet within the next few years with newbuildings already ordered and scheduled for delivery between 2017 and 2018.

Currently, the company’s fleet consists of around 160 owned and commercially managed product tanker vessels.
