Despite the charter market continuing to support only modest returns, the newbuilding market has maintained strength on the back of historically low pricing levels, reports Clarkson Hellas S+P as follows:

Dry bulk carriers
The focus this week being on the Ultramax and Handysize sectors. It was reported this week that that d’Amico Ireland Ltd have placed an order for four firm 64,000 DWT Ultramax at Yangfan, with delivery of all vessels in 2016 and pricing in the region USD 25 Mill.

Also in China, Clarkson Hellas understands that Cyprus owners FrontMarine have placed an order for four firm 58,500 DWT Supramax at New Times. Pricing for these vessels is understood to be in the high USD 25 Mill, with delivery in 2015.

At Tsuneishi’s Cebu facility in the Philippines, it was reported that Uni-Asia Shipping have contracted two firm 58,000 DWT Supramax. Although pricing for this deal was undisclosed, delivery of both vessel is understood to be due in 2015.

Pricing is understood to be in the region USD 93 Mill per vessel with delivery of the firm vessels in 2016 and options in 2017 if declared.

At the opposite end of the sizes, Clarkson S+P understand that Weihai Samjin have taken an order for three firm plus one option 5,800 DWT Chemical / Product tankers from Korean buyer Techmarine.

With China increasingly featuring in the container newbuilding market, this week we have seen SWS group taking orders for three firm 16,000 TEU container carriers from CSSC Shipping, understood for charter to CMA-CGM. With pricing undisclosed, delivery of all three vessels is understood to be in the second half of 2015.

With this order understood to now include a total of up to eight further options, delivery of the most recent orders is due for the second half of 2015.

Similarly to both the tanker and container market, we have seen an additional order in the smaller sizes with Brave Maritime having placed an order for four firm 3,500 CBM LPG carriers at Kitanihon, with delivery of all four firm vessels due in 2015.
