U.S.-based ship owner and operator Eagle Bulk Shipping has taken delivery of the second of six recently acquired Ultramax drybulk vessels.
The ship, that has been renamed the M/V Sydney Eagle, is a 2015-built, high specification scrubber-fitted SDARI-64 bulker built at Jiangsu New Hantong Ship Heavy Industry Co., Ltd.
The first unit from the batch, that has been renamed the M/V Dublin Eagle, was delivered to its new owner less than a week earlier.
Four of the six bulkers, acquired earlier through two separate deals, would be delivered with scrubbers. The additions are part of Eagle Bulk Shipping’s fleet renewal strategy.
Once it takes delivery of the four remaining units, Eagle Bulk Shipping, one of the world’s largest owner-operators within the Supramax/Ultramax segment, will have a fleet of 50 ships, including 20 Ultramax drybulk vessels acquired over the last 36 months.
