Interunity picks up bulker in court sale

Greek-German outfit Interunity Interunity Management has picked up the 2010-built handysize bulker Apellis, previously owned by Greek owner Pyrsos Shipping. Brokers reported the sale at $7.2m.

The vessel was sold at auction in Hong Kong after China’s Beihai Maritime Court ordered its detention at Fangchenggang Port in July. The vessel was arrested at the request of Zhoushan Changhong International Shipyard, who claimed it was owed around $167,000 for repair works carried out in Zhoushan.

Interunity confirmed the deal with Splash today, saying that the vessel had been delivered and will be renamed shortly. The acquisition grows the Interunity fleet to 13 vessels, having just picked up a trio of 2011-built handysize MPPs from Woodstreet for $6m each.
