A Bermuda-based shipowner backed by private equity power the Carlyle Group appears to be marketing the majority of its remaining fleet of handysize bulkers for sale, market sources say.

Interlink is circulating the 2015-built and 2016-built units and is believed to have attracted a handful of bidders, said sources in the bulker trade.

Four of the handysizes were built in 2015 and eight in 2016, the sources added, all at Chinese shipyards.

TradeWinds has contacted Interlink, which is led by shipping veteran Paul Gurtler, for comment.
