NMB buys Primal bulker

Bulgaria’s Navibulgar has completed its set of modern domestically built handymaxes with a deal for a Greek-owned bulker.


The shipowner said it would take delivery this month of the 42,000-dwt Wanderlust (built 2006).

The former Talon II and Furtrans Bulk will be renamed Murgash.

It was built in Varna Shipyard in Bulgaria, but sold as an incomplete hull and then finished at Turkey’s Anadolu Shipyard.

It is currently owned by Primal Shipmanagement of Greece.

Navibulgar said the deal brings to four the number of 42,000-dwt ships it owns, all built between 2004 and 2008 in Bulgaria.

Wanderlust was originally ordered in 1997.
