d’Amico Group selling one of its three containerships
Cielo di Casablanca will be bought by German company Okee Maritime
Hamburg-based shipping company Okee Maritime will add a fourth containership to its fleet taking the Cielo di Casablanca from d’Amico Dry some sources revealed.
The Italian shipping group confirmed that the 1998-built boxship “is committed to German buyers and the sale is set to be closed during the first week of July. The ship will be delivered in the Mediterranean with special survey and drydock”.
Okee Maritime’s fleet today is composed by three aged boxships with 1,300 teu capacity each.
In the recent past the Cielo di Casablanca was chartered out to Cma Cgm as is also the Cielo di Agadir. The third boxship in d’Amico’s fleet is the Cielo di Rabat and is commercially operated by Maersk.
Further four ships controlled by d’Amico Società di Navigazione group are intended for sale this year: more specifically they are the three tankers Cielo di Milano, Cielo di Hanoi and Cielo di Salerno (owned by d’Amico Tankers) and the dry bulkers Medi Bangkok (controlled by d’Amico Shipping Singapore Ltd).
All vessels will be replaced by newbuildings the Rome-based group will receive in the next months.
