Your Weekly Seasure S&P Report
Register for the Seasure Blue Report to see the total sales for last week, comparing the VesselsValue.com online valuation to the sale price. 2014 ytd S&P trends are also included.
Older VLCC values increasedThe main story of the week has been VLCCs with Metrostar selling 4 2015/2016 delivery VLCCs to Euronav with an additional 4 options (delivery 2016/2017). The price for the firm ships was usd 96 million which was slightly below the VV value. Also in the last week the Kalymnos 299, 100 dwt blt 2000 Daewoo has been sold by Centrofin to Russian interests at the very firm price of usd 39 million. This has resulted in the values of modern VLCCs dropping while values for older tonnage have increased. No other significant activity has taken place in the tanker market.Only significant activity in the bulker market has been in the Ultramax / Supramax segment where 2 NB resale Ultramaxs ex Oshima have been sold to Greek Buyers at usd 25 million and the Aston Trader I 55, 500 dwt blt 2008 Oshima has been committed on subs at usd 12.8 million also to Greek buyers. The effect of these to sales has been to slightly increase the values of modern tonnage while decreasing the values of older tonnage.Again, minimal activity in the container segment.
