Seaspan takes 11,000 teu Yangzijiang resale

Seaspan remains highly active chopping and changing its fleet mix in the weeks following the announcement that its co-founder, Gerry Wang, is retiring.

Brokers Braemar ACM links the Vancouver owner to taking a resale at one of its favoured yards, Yangzijiang in China. Seaspan has come in for an 11,000 teu ship that will deliver in January next year. The Canadian company has already secured a charter to CMA CGM for the vessel for a three-year period at $29,000 per day.

In the middle of last month, Splash reported Asiatic Lloyd swooping for four Seaspan 4,275 teu ships at $9.5m per unit.

Wang’s exit, announced at the end of July, came in the wake of another key Seaspan executive, Graham Porter, quitting earlier this year.
