News of Minerva Marine’s latest disposal confirms that Greek owners of ageing tanker tonnage can keep counting on healthy buying appetite east of the Aegean.

Athens brokers and ship management sources said the Martinos family company has agreed to offload the 105,300-dwt Minerva Zoe (built 2004).

This is one of the seven oldest tankers in the major Greek owner’s fleet, all built in 2004.
