Newbuilding report dated 12 February 2019

With the weekly number of orders surfacing once again below the average of the past twelve months, it seems that February will most probably see softer contracting activity compared to last month, while despite the weaker trend it seems that appetite for both dry bulk and tanker vessels is there. In the case of tankers and specifically VLCCs one could say that this appetite is actually increasing. 

The weekly newbuilding report by Intermodal Research & Valuations feature, include newbuilding prices for dry bulk-, tanker- and gas shipping segments. Additionally, recent newbuilding orders are listed by units, type, size, yard, expected delivery date and price.
