Greeks take Dong-A aframax resales

In the aframax segment, Korean owners Dong-A Tankers are understood to have committed two aframax resales, Hulls S811” & “S812 (114,200 dwt, delivery April & July 2017 Hyundai Samho) at $43.7m a piece to Greek owners Marmaras and Stealth Maritime.

Despite there being a lack of recent sales on the resale front, recent deals done on slightly later Korean berths in the low $40ms would indicate that these latest deals are a little firmer than one would have expected, a sign that buyers are seeing increasing value in current crude pricing.
