Danish shipping giant Maersk has been linked to a sale of two containerships to Japan’s Nissen Kaiun.

According to a report from Intermodal Research and Valuations, the vessels in question are the 2012-built Maersk Edirne and Maersk Eureka.

The units were allegedly sold at a price of USD 46 million a piece and were time chartered back to Maersk. Built by South Korea’s Hyundai Heavy Industries, the vessels feature around 13,100 TEUs.

The containerships are said to be a part of a batch of six units which were taken over by Maersk from German Commerzbank earlier this year. Maersk reportedly paid USD 280 million for the secondhand boxships, which included two Sub-Panamaxes and four Panamaxes.

The two ships were previously known as Hanjin Sooho and Hanjin Asia and were part of Hanjin Shipping’s fleet, a former South Korean shipping giant which went bankrupt in 2017.
