CDB Leasing snaps up six Ultramaxes from Celsius
China Development Bank Financial Leasing (CDB Leasing) continues to add secondhand tonnage to its fleet, with a new deal to acquire six 60,000 DWT Ultramax bulk carriers.
The Hong Kong-listed company has snapped up GH Danzero, GH Urban Sea, GH Sky Beauty, GH Galileo, GH Eclipse and GH Desert Orchid from Denmark’s Celsius Shipping for $129.8m.
The transaction involves six CDB Leasing’s Hong Kong-incorporated subsidiaries, which are principally engaged in the vessel leasing business.
Earlier this week, CDB Leasing entered into an agreement to acquire eleven vessels from Danish bulk operator Clipper in a deal worth around $140m.
