Newbuilding report dated 9 April 2019

Last week saw another round of generous contracting activity surfacing, with more orders reported across both the tanker and dry bulk sector. Having said that, dry bulk ordering seems to be down year to date by more than 50%, while if we look into the specific sizes, we actually see that Handysizes are the only ones witnessing increased activity, while as expected, Capes/VLOC show the biggest drop.

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.
