A healthy newbuilding activity took place during the past week. Interest was evident across almost all segments, with the exception of the tanker sector which continued to see limited appetite for newbuilding units. On the dry bulk front, three 82,000dwt units were ordered by the Japanese owner Nisshin Shipping at Jiangsu Hantong at a price of $34.0m each.
The newbuilding market activity was in line with the course that we have been witnessing since the start of the year. Crude carrier units were missing for another week while LNG and container deals were present as always despite the increasing newbuilding prices.
