The company reported that the vessel was delivered to the new owners on May 14th 2013 and Goldenport said it expected to realise a book loss of $1.8m net of commissions.

The vessel was initially acquired in 2006 for a total consideration of $14.4m and Goldenport said that it had traded successfully with the company for the last seven years, resulting in a cumulative adjusted earnings before interest tax depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) excluding non-cash items of $21.8m during that period.

Goldenport said it would utilize the proceeds to increase liquidity and would continue to review the market for accretive vessel acquisitions.
