Clipper adds handysizes
(Posted on 10/09/19)
Clipper Bulk, in close collaboration with a financial partner, has acquired three Handysize dry cargo vessels.
The acquisition involves: A 32,755 DWT carrier built in 2010, to be renamed Clipper Appollonia; A 32,691 DWT carrier built in 2010 to be renamed Clipper Aegina; A 32,535 DWT carrier built in 2010 to be renamed Clipper Alexandria
Clipper Bulk will take delivery of the three vessels during the next months.
Following these additions, Clipper Bulk now operates approximately 85 Handysize and Supramax vessels, including tonnage operated by the two Clipper Bulk-managed pools: the Clipper Handy Pool (28-38,000 dwt vessels incl. fully fitted loggers) and the Clipper Ultra Pool (64,000 dwt, grabs fitted vessels).
Clipper Group is a privately owned company, established in 1972 as a ship operator. Since then, the company has grown to become an industry leader in dry bulk with substantial investments in other shipping segments as well.
