Demolition report dated 7 December 2018

Ship recycling markets remained stretched this week – both with the supply of pricey unsold Cash Buyer tonnage, as well as local offerings that seem to be arrowing downwards. However, there have paradoxically been a number of fresh deals this week, not only at lower overall levels, but also a few spectacularly priced fixtures of specialist vessels, as owners remain determined to shed some of their aging tonnage before the year-end.

The weekly demolition report by GMS, provides an overview of the demolition market, price by scrap yard location and ship type.
