Naples-based D’Amato di Navigazione looks like it is ready to get rid of its last two ships in its fleet. Broker sources report that the 2010-built handysize bulk carrier named Bulker Alessia has been sold to Greek buyer Oceanfleet Shipping, for $8.75m. There was no comment from Maddalena D’Amato, the head of the Italian company, following a confirmation request from Splash.
According to VesselsValue.com database, as of today the Athens-based Oceanfleet Shipping’s fleet consist of nine dry cargo vessels ranging from 19,100 dwt to 76,400 dwt.
Trading Fabrizia, the sister ship of the Bulker Alessia (both built at SPP and 35,000 dwt), was said to be sold in July for $8.5m but this market rumour was defined as “unfounded” by Maddalena D’Amato.
