Bremen-based shipping company Zeaborn Group has decided to buy five heavy lift vessels from Rickmers Holding, according to reports by several German media.

The ships in question are Rickmers Singapore, Rickmers Jakarta, Rickmers New Orleans, Rickmers Seoul, all of them built in 2003, and Rickmers Dalian, constructed in 2004. They will be delivered to Zeaborn in late September.

The price tag of the alleged deal has not been revealed.

However, each of the abovementioned ships currently has market values between USD 6 and USD 7 million, VesselsValue’s data shows.

The vessels will join the 2002-built Rickmers Hamburg, which Zeaborn acquired earlier this year as part of a deal to take over business operations of compatriot Rickmers-Linie. This included the entire operating business of Rickmers’ subsidiaries, MCC Marine Consulting & Contracting and NPC Projects.

In June, Rickmers Holding was forced to file for insolvency after HSH Nordbank AG rejected further negotiations of the restructuring.

World Maritime News contacted Rickmers Holding and Zeaborn for more details on the sale. Rickmers Holding declined to comment, while Zeaborn is yet to reply.
