dship expands fleet with Sophia and Josef

dship Carriers has added two F360-Type vessels to its fleet under a long-term charter agreement.

The ships were purchased in a joint bid between dship Carriers (owned by the Press family) and HS Bereederungs. The latter will be responsible for the technical management of the ships; dship Carriers has taken both vessels under long-term charter.

The first vessel, Sophia, was transferred on April 6, 2018 in Port Everglades, USA. The second vessel, Josef, will be transferred to its new owners in June this year.

Both ships are equipped with two 180-tonne capacity cranes, capable of lifting 360-tonnes in tandem.

"The new ships, with their open hatch box shaped design and combined lifting capacity of 360 tonnes, enables us to load a larger variety of project cargo. We are glad to be able to strengthen our fleet with these two modern vessels," said Lars Feller, global vice president of dship Carriers.
