Derin Denizcilik Gemi exits shipowning

Turkey’s Derin Denizcilik Gemi brief foray into shipowning has come to a close.

Broker sources tell Splash that the three-ship strong bulker player has decided to let go of all its ships, selling the eight-year-old supramaxes DD Karadeniz, DD Ege and DD Marmara for around $30m en bloc.

The Istanbul-headquartered company quietly snapped up the three STX Jinhae built supramaxes towards the end of last year from Dutch outfit Zealand Shipping for an undisclosed price.
