Norway's Pareto has finally succeeded in selling three platform supply vessels (PSVs) acquired from Bourbon seven years ago.

Brokers said the 3,300-dwt Antenor, Asterie (both built 2004) and Bourbon Atlantide (built 2003), owned by Pareto's 3B Offshore, have gone for $0.88m each.

Clarksons said A1 Offshore of Denmark has snapped up Antenor and Bourbon Atlantide, with Asterie going to Raj Shipping of India.

VesselsValue assesses Antenor as worth $1.3m, Atlantide at $1.27m and Asterie at $1.31m.

The ships were acquired from French giant Bourbon by Pareto's 100%-owned 3B Offshore in 2012 for $24m each.

They were then chartered back to the seller over five years for $8,200 per day.

Bourbon told TradeWinds that the vessels had now been sold, but did not know details.

Pareto Offshore referred TradeWinds' enquiry to sister company Johan G Olsen, which could not immediately be contacted.

A sale of the trio at what would have been an attractive price fell through in November last year.

They were committed on subjects to an unnamed buyer for $2.75m en bloc.

The vessels are laid up in West Africa.
