The Arne Blystad group remains positive on tankers, despite sales this summer that have cleared out its last tankers larger than 20,000 dwt.

The company declined to comment on fresh reports of the sale of the 107,100-dwt Songa Coral (built 2005) by a Blystad-controlled entity.

But brokers have reported the Songa Coral as sold to unknown buyers for $25m. The price reflects its ballast water treatment system and scrubbers, both installed in January 2020.
