Third-party ship manager Zeaborn Ship Management is targeting a fleet of 150 ships, says chief executive Michael Brandhoff.

That is down from an earlier goal of about 250 ships set under the former management.

Growing demands on ship managers have set limits to what may be the optimum size of fleet, Brandhoff said.

“We have 130 ships under management and are looking for 150 to 200 max,” he explained.
