Berge Bulk takes Bohai newcastlemax options

James Marshall-led Berge Bulk has exercised options for two newcastlemaxes at Bohai Shipbuilding in the north of China. The 208,000 dwt Tier II ships have been contracted at a very competitive price of just $45m each, according to broking sources. The ships will deliver promptly next year.

Singapore-based Berge Bulk is one of the world’s biggest owners of large bulkers with 58 ships trading and another five on order.
