Greek shipowners do not care about sanctions against Russian oil Ukraine

Equinox Maritime reportedly prevailed in online auction for CMB Financial Leasing ship, in which six buyers took part

A Greek shipowner has emerged victorious in an online auction for a modern Chinese ultramax bulker.

European brokers reported CMB Financial Leasing’s 61,400-dwt Great Venture (built 2019) sold for $30.03m or $30.04m in China.

According to Clarksons, the winning bid was put forward by clients of Equinox Maritime of Greece. Managers at the Athens-based company were not immediately available to comment.

The $30m valuation ties in with what Vessels Value estimates the ship is worth, down from $34.5m
