Goldwin’s dry bulk exit delayed

A month ago the sale of two supramax vessels, the 53,000 dwt Amber Beverly (built 2011) and Amber Alena (built 2010), was widely reported with brokers putting an en bloc concluded price of $23m for the pair. Brokers told Splash at the time that there may be trouble with the sale, which was part of Hong Kong’s Goldwin Shipping’s plans to exit dry bulk.

One ship, the 63,000 dwt Amber Alena has now been delivered to its new Chinese owner while its sister ship, the Amber Beverly is for sale once again. The ship did not make it in time to finish all import procedures by September 1 after having been delayed on its trip from Gebe Island in Indonesia back to China. New rules in China from the start of next month have brought a clampdown on the import of less environmentally friendly ships.

Goldwin also has a third supramax up for grabs. It is also a sister ship from Chengxi shipyard, built in 2013.
