Amoretti Armatori sells small tanker to NT Marine

Following a recent orders for a pair of small tankers in China and the purchase of two MR1s from Rederi Ab Gotland, Parma-based shipping company Amoretti Armatori has just completed the sale of one of the older vessel in its fleet.

The 1997-built Rina Amoretti, after coming off time charter to the same oil major in Northern Europe for two decades, has been sold to Estonia’s NT Marine for around $4.5m. The vessel has been renamed Rina.

Rina is the third small tanker bought by NT Marine from Italian owners.

  1. Not many Shipowners can say that one of their tankers has successfully completed a 20 year T/C with the same Charterer and then been sold on for further trading. Perhaps the fact that the vessel was a RINA “Ship of the Year” award winner in 1997 has something to do with it?
    Well done Amoretti!
