Eolos Shipmanagement scores above market $15m for its last kamsarmax

Georgios Feidakis’ privately held Eolos Shipmanagement has sold its last ship, pocketing a very tidy sum for an eight-year kamsarmax.

Feidakis, who founded Nasdaq Capital-listed Globus Maritime, has managed to get $15m for the 80,000 dwt Energy G. By comparison, the 81,000 dwt, seven-year-old Trade Vision, belonging to bust Toisa, has just been committed for $14.5m. Moreover, brokers are impressed with this premium Feidakis has achieved as the Energy G was built at Jiangsu Eastern, widely deemed a worse yard than Guangzhou Longxue where the Trade Vision was constructed.

Feidakis’s son, Athanasios, has been running Globus Maritime for the past two and a half years. In an interview carried on this site from April this year the bullish Globus Maritime boss outlined how he was in the market for supramaxes, kamsarmaxes and panamaxes. Globus Maritime currently operates a fleet of four supramaxes and one panamax.
