New York-listed DHT Holdings has added some extra liquidity after a quarter in which its VLCC fleet booked another loss.

DHT said on Monday that it has sold the 298,000-dwt DHT Hawk (built 2007) for $40m and twin DHT Falcon (built 2006) for $38m. The buyer was not identified.

The Svein Moxnes Harfjeld-led tanker owner said it expects to book a profit of $12m on the two sales once it repays debt on the vessels, and will net $65m in cash.
