Eagle Bulk Buys One More Crown-63 Ultramax

Connecticut-based owner and operator of dry bulk vessels Eagle Bulk Shipping has acquired a 2015-built Crown-63 Ultramax bulk carrier.

As informed, the ship was purchased for USD 21.275 million.

Although the name of the ship was not disclosed, VesselsValue’s data shows that Eagle Bulk bought the 2015-built Ultramax bulker Essence of Seatrek from Seatrek Trans on December 13.

The 63,500 dwt vessel was constructed at Yangzhou Dayang Shipbuilding in China, the same yard as the nine Ultramaxes acquired by the company earlier this year, and is of similar design.

The bulker is scheduled to be delivered to the company in January 2018 and will be renamed the M/V New London Eagle, Eagle Bulk said.

Including the M/V New London Eagle, the company’s fleet will comprise 47 vessels, including 12 Ultramaxes purchased over the last 12 months.
