Captain Jess Tomagan tells TradeWinds that the 32,300-dwt King Yukon(built 2009) was managed by Toyo Kaiun of Japan, the ship’s operator, when it was held in New Orleans last month.

While the Clarksons SIN and Equasis databases continue to identify Aboitiz Jebsen as manager, Tomagan says his company severed ties to the vessel in September of last year in a move that marked end of a relationship that lasted more than four years.

“Toyo Kaiun wanted to cut costs so they took management in-house,” he explained.
