Sales talk also surrounds the 2004-built vintage cape sold by Malaysia’s Prima Shipmanagement with reports that the 18-year-old Japanese-built Tasik Melati has been let go for around $16m.

Other sales that have come to light include two 170,000 dwt, Hyundai-built ships named Olympius and Victorius, which have changed hands to undisclosed UAE-based buyers.

Among other confirmed cape deals, NASDAQ-listed Greek owner Seanergy Maritime released a statement on Friday with news that the 2010-built Knightship and Lordship were sold to unaffiliated third parties in Japan and chartered back.
