Oceanfleet picks up Interorient handysize

Greek owner Oceanfleet Shipping has added to its fleet for the first time in three years, according to brokers, with the acquisition of 2011-built handysize bulker Orient Tribune.

Seasure Shipbroking and Advanced Shipping & Trading both report that Oceanfleet has paid $8.6m to Interorient for the vessel, a price in line with the $8.5m valuation from VesselsValue.

If confirmed, the deal grows Oceanfleet’s fleet to nine bulkers.
