The Malta-registered bulk carrier Trading Fabrizia will finally be auctioned off on January 8 after spending more than a year in Kingston Harbour.
The ship was detained in Jamaica on behalf of Italian outfit Jebmed in its capacity as mortgagee of the vessel, over a debt of $699,046.38 allegedly due from Capitalease, the Milan-based owner of the ship. The shipowner also owes significant bunker dues as well as back pay to the ship’s crew.
Capitalease became the owner of the Trading Fabrizia following the demise of D’Amato di Navigazione. The 34,529 dwt ship has been tied up in a series of complex legal battles for the last 13 months.
London-based shipbrokers CW Kellock and Company will handle the auction of the bulker next month.
