Augustea sale falls through

A widely reported sale of one of Augustea’s ships, the newly delivered ABY Virginia, has failed, according to sources.

The brand new kamsarmax was widely reported sold at $25m with a time charter back agreement to Augustea for 8-10 months at a rate of $9,750 daily.

The rumoured sale and subsequent failure was not confirmed by Augustea’s ceo Raffaele Zagari when Splash contacted him earlier this week.

Zagari confirmed the sale of the panamax bulk carrier Ribbon and that two bulk carriers are expected to leave Augustea’s fleet in the coming weeks.
