Taiwanese shipowner Chi-Chien Hsu (CC Hsu) has resumed a string of secondhand capesize buys that started in 2020, taking advantage of a dip in the capesize chartering market and in secondhand sentiment.

The purchase of the 203,500-dwt newcastlemax China Steel Realist (built 2007) from Taiwanese compatriot China Steel Express brings the capesize fleet of Hsu's Eddie Steamship to five.
