Seachange Maritime exiting container shipping

Miami-based Seachange Maritime is about to exit the container shipping sector. Since the start of the year, Seachange Maritime has sold the 2,826 teu Tasanee, the 2,754 teu Taroko, the 2,564 teu Imara and the 1,577 teu Manatee, according to Alphaliner. These deals follow the sale of the 2,135 teu Kamala, back in December 2016, which was purchased by China’s Xin Ou Shipping and renamed Xin Ou 19.

Seachange Maritime was set up in 2006 by two former Ofer Group executives, Samuel Norton and Yariv Zghoul, with the backing of US private equity, according to Alphaliner. At its peak it had a dozen vessels.
