D’Amato’s last bulk carrier finally secures Jamaican exodus

The 2011-built bulk carrier Trading Fabriza, after being arrested a year ago in the port of Kingston, Jamaica, has finally been sold at auction for $10.3m according to VesselsValue.com.

Some 15 shipping companies submitted their offers to the Admiralty bailiff of Jamaica but only five owners took an active part in the tender.

Sources revealed to Splash that the buyer is the Greek company Bluffin Marine controlled by the Boulieris family.

Trading Fabrizia was the last ship in the fleet of the Italy-based D’Amato di Navigazione which in the last few years passed under the control of the Italian leasing company Capitalease headed by Francesco Organista.
