NRP’s Premium Maritime Credit Fund has provided debt financing for the acquisition of a 33,000-dwt handysize dry bulk vessel.

The Oslo-based fund gave a bilateral senior secured first priority loan facility of $6m to an undisclosed but “reputable European shipowner”, according to a post on LinkedIn.

“Our Premium Maritime Credit Fund doesn’t age discriminate, we facilitate,” NRP Maritime Asset Management, which manages the fund, said in the post.
