Eagle Bulk Adds New Ultramax to its fleet
US-based owner and operator of dry bulk vessels Eagle Bulk Shipping announced that it has taken delivery of the first of six modern Ultramax drybulk vessels the Company has previously agreed to acquire.
The ship, which has been renamed the M/V Dublin Eagle, is a 2015-built, high specification scrubber-fitted SDARI-64 Ultramax vessel built at Jiangsu New Hantong Ship Heavy Industry Co., Ltd, said a press note from the player in the Supramax / Ultramax segment.
Proforma for the five remaining acquisition vessels, which have yet to be delivered, the Company’s fleet will total 50 ships, including 20 Ultramax drybulk vessels acquired over the last 36 months.
Headquartered in Stamford, Connecticut, with offices in Singapore and Copenhagen, Eagle focuses exclusively on the versatile mid-size drybulk vessel segment and owns one of the largest fleets of Supramax/Ultramax vessels in the world.
