A pair of kamsarmax vessels previously with the Bulk Trading Group (BTG) have been sold, apparently to Greek shipowner George Economou.

Several shipbrokers in London, Greece and the US report the 81,000-dwt sisterships BTG Kailash and BTG Olympos (both built 2015) as sold to Economou company TMS Dry in a $71m deal.

The two ships were known to be trading with BTG – a 50:50 joint venture between Norway's Kristian Gerhard Jebsen Skipsrederi (KGJS) and JP Morgan’s Global Maritime Investment Fund.
