Prime spunks nearly $11m for Dong-A Peneus

Prime Shipping of Vietnam has continued its S&P relationship with South Korea’s Dong-A Tankers. The active Vietnamese owner has paid close to $11m for the eight-year-old 13,000 dwt epoxy coated IMO II chemical tanker Dong-A Peneus, according to the latest weekly report from Clarksons Research.

This follows on from the sale of the 2006-built Dong-A Pontius for $10.5m in June last year.
