Handysize bulker prices remain steady

Values remain steady in the handysize bulker segment, Clarkson Research reports, with Japan’s Yahata Kisen selling the modern 28,348 dwt Kronos Island for $9.3m to busy Evalend Shipping after many owners had inspected the vessel.

Elsewhere, Norden disposed of the larger 36,746 dwt Nord Barcelona for a price in the low $9ms to Norbulk Shipping UK.

Modern secondhand handysize bulkers remain one of the most in demand ship types at the moment.
