Middle East buyer pays $8.5m for 15yo tanker
An undisclosed shipowner from the Middle East has paid US$8.5m to purchase a 15 year-old tanker.
The 68,967-dwt Pacific Bravery (built 1999) has been reported sold by various shipbrokers in Europe.
The vessel, which belonged to Greek shipowner Chartworld, was sold for $8.5m, the same price the Greek company had purchased it for two years ago.
Chartworld had tried to sell the ship in February of this year, however the deal fell through at the final minute.
