MPC Capital adds three more panamax boxships

Hamburg-based MPC Maritime Investments, a wholly-owned subsidiary of MPC Capital, has acquired three panamax-sized container vessels for $42m on behalf of an unspecified international investor.

MPC Maritime has procured a total of nine single and multi-asset deals with an investment volume of more than $110m so far this year. The focus of the newly acquired vessels is on bigger container ships, supplemented by bulkers and one tanker. The majority of the vessels are technically managed by Ahrenkiel Steamship and commercially managed by Contchart. Both companies are wholly-owned subsidiaries of MPC Capital.
