151 containerships sold in 2012

23 January 2013

151 containerships of a combined 255,227 TEU changed hands on the secondhand market in 2012. The majority of transactions occurred in the smaller size ranges, with 62 confirmed sales of 1,000-1,999 TEU vessels and 45 sales of 500-999 TEU ships last year. In comparison, there were just eleven 4,000+ TEU vessels sold, of a combined 62,838 TEU. The largest containerships sold last year were the 7,943 TEU sisters “Bunga Seroja Satu” and “Bunga Seroja Dua”, built in 2006 and 2007, which were sold by MISC to clients of Marinakis for a combined $96m. Turning to December, the most notable sale last month saw Middle East interests acquire the “Laurita Rickmers” (built 1998, Stocz. Szczecin, 1,162 TEU/750 at 14t, 3x40t cr. Ice) from Rickmers Reederei for a reported $4m. Meanwhile, in the MPP sector, Filipino interests purchased the “G Star” (built 1994, Fujian Mawei, 907 TEU/780 at 14t, Ice) for an undisclosed sum from ACE Marine, while the “MCL Tunis” (built 1996, Alexandria S.Y., 373 TEU, 2x35t cr., Ice) fetched $1.8m. Overall, secondhand boxship prices fell significantly over 2012 - the Container Price Index for 10 year old vessels reached historic lows. For example, the benchmark price for a 10 year old 1,700 TEU geared containership slipped to $8m, down from $12.25m at the end of 2011.
