Marshal moves for its third ship in 2019

Six-ship strong Marshal Shipping from Dubai is linked to its third ship in in two months, adding a sub-panamax containership, its second ship in this segment. Marshal is paying Borealis Maritime $7.1m for the 2,496 teu Puccini, its most expensive container vessel to date.

Borealis originally bought the ship as the ER Bremen five years ago. The Puccini is the fourth boxship in Marshal’s fleet. In March, the Middle Eastern owner also added its first two aframax tankers to its fleet.
