Japan’s SBI Leasing has agreed a bareboat charter deal for two stainless steel chemical tankers with Singapore-based MOL Chemical Tankers.

Without naming the ships, SBI said that it had acquired two 25,000-dwt chemical tankers which were built at Kitanihon Shipbuilding and delivered in 2020.

The pair have been chartered out on a bareboat basis to MOL Chemical Tankers — a subsidiary of shipping giant Mitsui OSK Lines — at an undisclosed rate for an undisclosed period.
