BBG News Update November 2016

November 2016 - Quelle: BBG

During the past year BBG underwent extensive changes.

With the takeover of further four new builds in 2015 and two in 2016 (all Liberian flagged Ultramax sized bulk carriers) from Jiangsu New Hantong Ship Heavy Industry Co. Ltd. (based in China) in cooperation with Nautical Bulk Holding, the latest one being Nautical Alice on 30th June 2016, BBG increased its fleet growth considerably. With 3 more new buildings to come, one of these being Nautical Anne with a scheduled delivery in December 2016 (the last two will follow mid of 2017), it will be quite challenging for BBG to face the current bulk market situation.

Besides new vessels coming into the BBG fleet the company also had to take leave of some of their long-term managed CONTI vessels, as these have been or will be sold. The first vessels, MV “CONTI Fuchsit” and MV “CONTI Flint”, have been handed over by BBG to their new owner during October 2016 already. Within a couple of weeks these two vessels have been followed by the sale of MV “CONTI Jade” as well as MV “CONTI Japsis”.

In order to compensate the vessel sales and hence a shrinking fleet, BBG managed to establish a partnership with Peter Döhle Schiffahrts-KG in the meantime. The main focus of this cooperation lies in the change of the technical management of 7 vessels, 3 being bulk carriers and 4 being multipurpose vessels, from Peter Döhle to BBG. Since the beginning of July 2016 BBG gradually took over the mentioned 7 vessel into its technical management and has successfully completed this task on 10th October 2016 with the last vessel MV “Tatjana” changing its manager.

All three vessels will be commercially and operationally managed by Monaco based ship broking company C Transport Maritime (short CTM), but monitored by BBG respectively.
