Soechi takes Eletson gas carrier

Greek tanker outfit Eletson Gas has sold its first ship in a year, offloading its only LPG vessel built before 2010, netting $16m for the semi-pressurised, 22,952 cu m Japanese-built Mathraki.

The taker of the ship is Indonesia’s Soechi Lines, a very active player in the sale and purchase market over the last year. The latest ship brings its LPG fleet to four in an overall tanker fleet that now numbers more than 50 vessels.
