Hong Kong owner Pacific Basin has made its second acquisition in a week according to brokers.
Seasure Shipbroking reports that the company has paid $14.5m to Japan’s Tachibanaya Co for 2011-built supramax Ghent. The Tsuneishi Zhoushan-built vessel is valued at $13.96m by VesselsValue.com.
Last week, Splash reported that Pacific Basin had snapped up a pair of ultramaxes from Tufton Oceanic.
Pacific Basin recently said in its annual report that it will continue to opportunistically buy good quality secondhand ships.
