The Greek dry bulk owner led-by Simeon Palios, a well-known Greek businessman and shipping veteran who has spent many years in the industry, has signed through a separate wholly-owned subsidiary, a Memorandum of Agreement to sell to an unaffiliated third party, the 2005-built vessel “Aliki”, with delivery to the buyer latest by February 28, 2023.

The sale price of the vessel is US$15.08 million before commissions.

The shipowner, which specialises in the ownership and bareboat charter-in of dry bulk vessels, said today that upon completion of the sale of vessel Aliki, and the expected delivery of one Ultramax dry bulk vessel, Diana´s Shipping fleet will consist of 42 dry bulk vessels, (4 Newcastlemax, 10 Capesize, 5 Post-Panamax, 6 Kamsarmax, 8 Panamax and 9 Ultramax).

From today, the combined carrying capacity of the company’s fleet, excluding the 1 Ultramax dry bulk vessel not yet delivered and including the vessel Aliki, is approximately 4.9 million deadweight, with a weighted average age of 10.28 years.
