Oshima Shipbuiulding, the Japanese yard widely regard as one of the finest builders of dry bulk vessels in the world, is branching out. Oshima is now marketing a new 3,000 teu container feeder design.
The yard’s orderbook stretches all the way into 2019 at the moment, something few yards in Asia can claim. The yard says its new feeder design has been met with inquiries from Germany and across Asia including local Japanese lines.
The yard, which tends to specialise in bulkers ranging in size from 30,000 to 100,000 dwt, is on course to deliver a record 40 vessels this year.
