A Russian icebreaking anchor-handling tug supply (AHTS) ship has achieved a big premium to current elevated recycling prices.

Brokers have reported Femco’s very large, 16,800-bhp Kigoriak (built 1979) has been sold for scrap at $745 per ldt, or $3.6m.

This is well above cash buyers’ estimates of a top price of $610 per ldt for container ships heading to Bangladesh.

VesselsValue assessed the AHTS as being worth $2.87m
