GoodBulk has snapped six more capesize bulkers from CarVal to complete a year in which it has assembled a fleet of 25 ships after a junior listing in Oslo.

The John Michael Radziwill-led shipowner bought an initial seven capesizes from CarVal in October and has now exercised options for a further six.

The second tranche of bulkers were purchased after a rights issue that brought in proceeds of $25.6m.
