Deniz Nakliyati fleet sell-off thwarted as supramax deal collapses

Turkish owner Deniz Nakliyati, also known as Turkish Cargo Lines, has had to put two supramaxes up for sale once again after a deal for the vessels fell through.

Grieg Shipbrokers London circulated the 2011-built DN Millet and DN Vatan for sale on Friday, confirming the failure of the previous deal and inviting offers in the region of $30m en bloc.

Affinity Shipbrokers recently reported the vessels sold to Greek outfit Newport SA for a price of $29.8m. It is not yet clear why the deal with Newport, who own six bulkers according to Equasis, fell though.

Deniz Nakliyati has been working to sell off its fleet for a few years, and is down to these last two vessels.
