Golden Union spends $13m on mini-cape

The Greek shipping company Golden Union is buying the modern mini-capesize bulk carrier Chiara (115,000 dwt, built 2011) that will be soon operated on time charter by Swiss Marine. Some sources reported the Geneva-based trader as the potential buyer, but Peter Weernink, head of Swiss Marine, told Splash: “We are not the buyers”.

The seller is the Dutch company Bentonwood, which declined to comment on the deal, citing confidentiality clauses.

Brokers put the price of the Chinese-built ship at $13m.
