Songa Bulk has announced the sale of its 2009-built supramax bulker Songa Marlin, booking a $2m profit in the process. Brokers have identified Bangkok-based Thoresen Thai as the taker of the ship. 

The vessel was bought from Japan’s Kambara Kisen in November 2016 for $11.85m.

The Arne Blystad’s dry bulk outfit had revealed it was in the process of selling the vessel last week, while announcing an $18m tap issue to raise funds for acquisitions.

The $18m and proceeds of the supramax sale have allowed the company to acquire a six-year-old Korean-built capesize, keeping the Songa Bulk fleet at 15 vessels in total.

Songa Bulk expects to deliver the supramax to its new owners by mid-November while the capesize will be delivered by mid-January 2018.
