Golden Ocean Group has sold two more vessels, exiting the supramax market to become fully focused on panamax, capesize and newcastlemax bulkers.

The Oslo-listed shipowner said it declared a purchase option it had on a supramax and sold it “straight away”, generating $6m in gains that will be recognised next quarter when the ship delivers to the buyer.

The vessel would appear to be the 58,100-dwt Golden Hawk (built 2015), which Golden Ocean has had on charter from Japanese owner Doun Kisen.
