Chartworld linked to another bulker

Lou Kollakis company said to be buying third kamsarmax this year.

Chartworld Shipping has been linked to the purchase of a kamsarmax bulker from Nisshin Shipping.

If a deal is confirmed, it will be the third kamsamax that the Lou Kollakis company has bought this year.

The  Tsuneishi-built 81,000-dwt Epson Trader 2  (built 2009) has gone for $12.65m, which is in line with expectations.

TradeWinds reported this week that Chartworld is buying two former Hanjin ships, the 114,000-dwt New Times built bulkers N Buchanan (built 2011) and N Odessa (built 2012), paying $13m for each ship.

Kollakis is understood to be on holiday this week.
