Brokers tell Splash that fast emerging Greek owner M-Maritime has picked up yet another ship, going back to where it all started by snapping up a Japanese-built handysize.
This time the active outfit is adding the 34,500 dwt Namura-built Audrey Tracy from Germany Mineralien Schiffahrt Spedition und Transport GmbH. It’s reported to be paying $17.5m for the ship, a million more than it paid for its first vessel, Avra GR, in November.
Last month the Mytilineos backed company took a 60,000 dwt bulker under construction at Oshima Shipbuilding for around $23m, that will be named Areti GR. It has also been linked to a number of other ships. The outfit has also chartered in tonnage and aims to play in the spot and period market. The line’s parent company is the Athens listed outfit Mytilineos Holdings which is involved in mining and energy.
