Maersk Tankers snaps up Marwave handy

Maersk Tankers has again turned to Marwave Shipmanagement, purchasing a further handy tanker from the Dutch outfit.

Broker sources told Splash that the Saffo has been reported sold to the Copenhagen-based shipping company for a price around $18m. It has been renamed Maersk Kara.

In March this year, Maersk Tankers acquired the Giacinta from the same owners for a price in region of $21m which they then re-sold in September for a firm price rumored to be in region of $27m.

Italy’s Zacchello family continues to offload its shipping assets owned through Amsterdam-based companies such as Marwave, Bentonwood and Max Navigation. In the last two months two bulk carriers, Chiara and Tiare, and a further tanker, Elia, were sold respectively to Golden Union, an undisclosed buyer and to Polembros Shipping.
