Saudi Arabian tanker giant Bahri has emerged as the buyer of four modern VLCCs that were being marketed by SM Korea Line.

It is said to be paying an average of around $116m each for the scrubber-fitted quartet — the 300,800-dwt sister ships SM White Whale 1 and SM White Whale 2, and the 299,700-dwt SM Venus 1 (all built 2019) and SM Venus 2 (built 2020).
