Maersk Product Tankers has sold another MR vessel as sentiment remains bullish in the secondhand tanker market.

The Danish owner confirmed it disposed of the non-scrubber-fitted, 40,083-dwt Maersk Erik (built 2008) but declined to reveal the price or the identity of the buyer.

The vessel, which was constructed by South Korea’s SLS Shipbuilding, was said to have been bought by Italy’s Socomar for $12m.
