Seanergy Maritime Holdings has acquired a secondhand capesize bulk carrier to replace its oldest capesize, which will be spun off into a new listed company.

The pureplay capesize owner has bought an unnamed 2010-built vessel of about 180,000 dwt from a major Japanese company.

It will replace the 171,300-dwt Gloriuship (built 2004), which will be spun off under United Maritime Corp, to the benefit of Seanergy’s average fleet age and operating margin.
