Golden Union paying $32.5m for brand new cape

Brokers are linking Greece’s Golden Union with a $32.5m raid for a brand new 180,000 Chinese-built capesize. Golden Union is believed to have paid Carval Investors the firm price for the Mustang, a New Times ship that was delivered earlier this year.

Golden Union, controlled by Theodore Veniamis, has been very active in the S&P markets this year, making the most of the low prices to bolster its 40-strong fleet. Mustang marks Golden Union’s fourth acquisition this year.
