Kassian Maritime Navigation, run by the the Pappadakis family, has continued to renew its bulker fleet with the disposal of a 12-year-old panamax vessel.

The Greek outfit has sold the 74,000 dwt Afterhour (built 2007) to five-ship strong bulker outfit Niriis Shipping for $9m.

Lion Shipbrokers noted in its most recent market report that Kassian purchased the Panama as Godavari back in October 2016 for $6.1m.

The ship has already been renamed Ivestos 3.It marks the fifth panamax added in just as many months by Niriis.
