Istanbul-based Beks Shipmanagement has snapped up its second cape in the space of one month.
Broking reports indicate that the fast-growing owner has tabled around $32.5m for the nine-year-old cape True Endurance, sold by JP Morgan’s Global Maritime Investment Fund.
The Turkish player is one of many buyers hoping to relet their ships in a segment that is approaching the $100,000 per day barrier.
Beks has been busy all year, roughly tabling around $100m for five ships so far this year, four bulkers and a tanker.
Beks Ship Management and Trading was established in 2011 by the Turkish tycoon Ali Bekmezci.
