DHT Holdings sells suezmax tanker

NYSE-listed DHT Holdings has confirmed the sale of its 15-year-old suezmax tanker  DHT Trader to unnamed buyers for $26.5m, incurring a book loss of $0.8m, the company said.

The proceeds will be used to repay debt under its RBS facility, DHT said today in a release.

The owner attempted to sell the tanker in November to Greece’s Moundreas Shipping for $27m, but the sale failed.
