Pangaea acquires secondhand supramax

NASDAQ-listed dry bulk shipowner Pangaea Logistics Solutions has announced the acquisition of 2008-built  Tenmyo Maru from Japanese owner Kambara Kisen.

The 58,700 dwt vessel, built by Tsuneishi Zhoushan Shipyard, has fetched a price of $13.8m and will be renamed Bulk Pride when it joins Pangaea’s fleet in December.

“The delivery of Bulk Pride is another step toward achieving steady, disciplined growth that maximizes value to our customers, business partners and shareholders,” said Edward Coll, chairman and chief executive officer of Pangaea Logistics Solutions.

“All four of our vessel acquisitions this year will work in the heart of our business, which is growing strongly and profitably,” he added.

Pangaea had taken delivery of two ultramax dry bulk carriers from Japan’s Oshima Shipyard in January, and purchased 2005-built vessel Bulk Freedom in June. This latest acquisition will increase the company’s fleet to 18 bulkers.
