Navios Maritime Partners confirmed reports that it has sold two of its three MR1 tankers and went much further by unveiling the divestment of three more vessels, including its only chemical tankers.

TradeWinds already reported last month that the New York-listed Angeliki Frangou-controlled shipping giant was in the process of offloading the 36,300-dwt Perseus N — probably sold to Turkish interests — and 37,800-dwt Star N (both built 2009).

In a bourse filing on Wednesday, the company confirmed that both ships have gone to unrelated third parties.
