Thoresen Shipping acquires secondhand supramax bulker

Thoresen Thai Agencies has announced that subsidiary Thoresen Shipping Singapore has acquired secondhand dry bulk vessel Karaweik from an undisclosed seller for $7.9m.

According to VesselsValue, the 54,000dwt vessel was built by Japan’s Oshima Shipyard in 2006 and sold by Japanese owner Santoku Senpaku to an unnamed Greek owner for $8.2m in January this year.

Thoresen Thai said the acquisition is part of the company’s ongoing fleet renewal plan and its short-term objective is to have a mix of handymax and supramax vessels.

With the latest acquisition the Thoresen-owned fleet comprises a total of 20 vessels with an average age of 11.8 years.
