Greece’s Contships Management, the world’s largest independent owner of feeder ships with a capacity between 900 teu and 1,500 teu, has resumed acquisitions.

The Nikolas Pateras-led company acquired the 966-teu Vega Scorpio (built 2010) at an undisclosed price and with prompt delivery in the Caribbean, market sources said.

VesselsValue estimates the Yangfan Zhoushan-built vessel is currently worth around $9m.
