Both Seasure Shipbroking and Advanced Shipping & Trading have reported the sale at a price of $10.4m, slightly below the VesselsValue valuation of $10.78m.
Monte Nero Maritime was formed in 2017, and has quickly put together a fleet of five tankers. Little is known about the firm, which has registered ships under Grove Maritime Company.
