Marc Saverys is seeking to list a blank-cheque company on the Nasdaq less than a year after taking CMB private and leaving the board of Euronav.

Saverys is seeking to collect $150m from the float, with the family keeping a 20% interest after the listing, an SEC filing shows.

His new vehicle, Hunter Maritime Acquisition Corp, will be a family affair with sons Alexander and Ludovic sitting as chief executive and chief financial officer respectively.

Long term Saverys' lieutenant Benoit Timmermans is also on board as chief commercial officer.
