Nisshin Kaiun has emerged of the seller of the ship taken by Globus Maritime as reported by Splash last week. The Japanese firm sold the 2011-built, 80,000 dwt Nord Venus kamsarmax to Nasdaq-listed Globus Maritime for $16.5m.
Nisshin Kaiun has been having a significant fleet clearout of late. Brokers report it has just pocketed $18m from the sale of the 2012-built Kinoura kamsarmax, bought by unspecified Greek owners.
Nisshin Kaiun started the month with the sale of a nine-year-old, scrubber-fitted cape named Cologny to Hamburg-based Valhal Shipping.
