John Fredriksen's shipowning vehicle SFL Corp has no intention of offloading older vessels while they continue to bring in plenty of cash in hot markets.

Asked by analysts on a conference call about potential ship sales, chief financial officer Aksel Olesen said the US-listed company is always looking at the older fleet as potential sales candidates.

But there are no immediate plans for disposals, "in light of the current strong market for some of these vessels, like the containerships".
