Further terms of the transaction were not disclosed. Commenting on the purchase, Hans P. Feringa, President of Stolt Tankers, said, "We are pleased to have acquired these well priced, high quality assets, which enhance the scale efficiency of our fleet of European regional parcel tankers. The ships are a perfect fit with our current fleet, the contract portfolio we serve, and our goal of providing our customers with the quality, reliability and service flexibility that their supply-chain needs demand."

The three ships are highly specialised, with 20 duplex stainless steel tanks, ICE class 1A and fitted with nitrogen generators. They are sister ships to Stolt Tankers' R5 class, which consists of Stolt Razorbill, Stolt Kingfisher and Stolt Pelican.
