Extension of the Wilson fleet family
For about two years ago we entered a partnership with Arkon where we chartered several of the vessels on a Time Charter basis. Today (11.01.2022) we are happy to announce that we have purchased 11 of these general cargo vessels. The partnership with Arkon continues, but these 11 vessels will now be owned by us.
In a strong market situation, it is important for us to purchase and secure the tonnage on good and long-terms conditions. We therefore consider the transaction favorable in the current market situation and it underpins our long-term belief in the market.
The vessels that we now can welcome into the Wilson fleet family is: Wilson Dublin, Wilson Davanger, Wilson Drammen, Wilson Drogheda, Wilson Dundee, Wilson Dunmore, Wilson Dusavik, Wilson Durness, Wilson Halsvik, Wilson Hanstholm and Wilson Horten.
We will after this transaction operate a fleet of more than 130 vessels where about 110 of the vessels is owned by us.
