Chemship snaps up De Poli tanker

Following a recent period of investments in new tonnage, Barendrecht-based De Poli Tankers is finalising the sale of the 2005-built chemical tanker Davino D.

Brokers report that this vessel has been sold to Chemship at a price of $14m and no denials came from Chiara De Poli and her staff following Splash’s request for confirmation.

De Poli Tankers in October 2013 launched a fleet renovation plan consisting of two 19,800 dwt chemical tanker vessels ordered at Chinese Xinle Shipyard at Ningbo, both delivered in the last couple of years.

The Davino D sale is part of the De Poli Tankers fleet renovation plan and an order for a third newbuilding in China is an option under discussion at the moment according to sources close to the shipping company.
