Djakarta Lloyd finally seals a deal for a supramax

Three months on from Indonesia’s Djakarta Lloyd narrowly failed bid to make its first big ship purchase since skirting close to bankruptcy in 2015 Splash can reveal it has finally bagged a supramax bulker.

Broking sources say the state-run line shook hands with Danish owner, Norden, for the Oshima-built 55,000 dwt Nord Maru for around $12m.

In November Splash reported that Djakarta Lloyd was close to buying a one year younger ship from Japan’s Tokei Kaiun. The ship however ended up with Greek owner Target Marine.
