BBC Aramis sold to South Asian buyers

June 12 - The 3,490 dwt general cargo ship, BBC Aramis has been sold and delivered to an unnamed buyer.

This is the second ship which had been operational in the BBC Chartering fleet to be bought by the unnamed South Asian company, following an earlier purchase in December 2011. 

BBC Aramis (pictured below) was built in Slovakia in 2004 for Briese shipping bv, with the initial investment for the construction of the vessel brought together by De Vereenigde Compagnie

Briese Shipping's parent company, Leer Germany- based, Briese Schiffahrt GmbH, successfully traded the multipurpose vessel worldwide carrying a wide variety of cargoes; ranging from bulk and big bagged loads, to windmill modules and special project cargoes. 

Through the assistance of Anglo Dutch Shipbrokers, this is the fourth vessel of this size sold to the Far East. 

In an official statement, Briese Schiffahrt says that: "the current sale leaves the shareholders particularly content, as they fully regained their initial investment and earned an additional six percent profit per year despite the challenging economic times."
