Goodbulk snaps up Japanese capesize

Monaco-based owner Goodbulk  has taken the 2005-built capesize bulker Cape Liberty from Japan’s Fukujin Kisen for $19m.

GoodBulk is a new company created by Brentwood Shipping and Trading in December last year in partnership with Lantern Capital Partners and other partners to create a vehicle for investors to access the dry bulk shipping market.

The company completed a $100m equity offering in March to fund the acquisition of a fleet of five capesize vessels and one ultramax vessel from Carras for $97.5m.

Since March, Goodbulk has acquired nine bulkers in total growing its fleet to 10 vessels.
