Greece - Safe Bulkers Orders Capesize Vessel

When it comes to purchase of secondhand vessels it seems that Greek shipowners are taking the lead based on the developments over the past seven days. Namely, last week the shipping industry recorded purchase of 4 bulk carriers at a value of about $68.3mil and 2 tankers worth about $41.5mil, Golden Destiny reports.

Furthermore, the same source has revealed that Safe Bulkers, an international provider of marine drybulk transportation services, has placed an order for one Capesize vessel.

According to the Safe Bulkers’ report for the third quarter, as of November 9, 2012, the company had contracted to acquire seven newbuild drybulk vessels with scheduled deliveries, at various times through 2015. The orderbook consists of three Panamax class vessels, two Post-Panamax class vessels and two Capesize-class vessels.

In October this year, Safe Bulkers agreed with the relevant shipyard to shift scheduled deliveries of two Post-Panamax class vessels, from the second half of 2014 to the second half of 2015.

In November, the company also acquired a second-hand, 76,900 dwt, Japanese, 2003-built, Panamax class vessel, named Koulitsa, for a purchase price of $14.2 million. Koulitsa has been employed in the spot market.
