Chinese bulker owner Fortune Ocean Shipping has finally found a buyer for its four 2015-built, 34,400 dwt handysize vessels, Xing Jing Hai, Xing Ning Hai, Xing Yuan Hai and Xing Zhi Hai.
The four Namura-built vessels were reported sold to undisclosed Greek interests for around $18.5m each in November last year, but that deal failed. Now broker sources tell Splash the ships have been tied up again, this time fetching $17.5 m each, cutting Fortune Ocean’s handysize fleet in two. The buyer has yet to be identified.
Fortune Ocean currently operates a fleet of 22 bulkers, with another two panamax newbuildings on order.
