Carras (Hellas) has reportedly sold one of the most expensive capesizes ever ordered, at a price that is high by historical standards but below price levels observed in the secondhand market last month.

According to information provided by US-based brokers, the traditional Greek outfit has agreed to sell the 182,100-dwt Aquaprincess (built 2009) for $24m. This is the oldest vessel in Carras' listed bulker fleet of five ultramaxes, four kamsarmaxes and two capesizes.

Managers at Carras did not respond to a request for comment.
