Tufton Oceanic acquires two general cargo ships

London-listed Tufton Oceanic Assets has made its second acquisition of the year, agreeing a deal to acquire two general cargo vessels for a total of $13.15m. 
The investment comes from the proceeds of a $50m placement last month, and grows the company’s fleet to fourteen vessels.

Tufton Oceanic says the vessels will be bareboat chartered to a leading general cargo shipping operator for an average tenor of 5.5 years. 

The company’s last acquisition was also a general cargo vessel, having agreed a $6.75m deal in February.
