Safe Bulkers Expands its Fleet with $33m Purchase
Safe Bulkers Now has 40 Total Vessels in Fleet
A $33.8 million dollar purchase will be made with cash on hand for the 2014-built Japanese capesize by Greek-owned Safe Bulkers which is expected to receive the renamed vessel Maria in February 2022.
“This will be our sixth Cape and the 40th vessel in our fleet. MV Maria is sister vessel to our recently acquired MV Stelios Y and was bought, at what we believe to be a competitive price, capitalizing on the Capesize market seasonal weakness,” said Safe Bulkers President, Loukas Barmparis.
