Latest handy sale leaves Austbulk with just two ships

Malysian owner Austbulk’s fleet list continues to shrink. The family-owned company has just offloaded its 1999- built handysize, the 31,800 dwt  Eco Discovery for $4m, according to brokers.

This is the fourth vessel sold by the company since August and leaves the handymax specialist with only two ten-year-old handysize ships.
