dship Carriers has taken delivery of the F-500-type vessel Charlie, completing its newbuild fleet expansion programme that it initiated back in 2018.


Charlie is the fourth in the series, joining Mick, Keith and Ronnie in dship’s roster. The vessels were developed with the goal of reducing fuel consumption while increasing stowage flexibility. It is equipped with two Liebherr cranes with a lifting capacity of 250 tonnes each, and a Becker mewis duct and a Becker rudder – two devices utilising energy-saving technology.

“dship Carriers is committed to helping achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement — our newbuild F-500 vessels are one more step towards this. We look forward to seeing Charlie in action and wish the crew all the best and good luck,” said Lars Feller, global vice president at dship Carriers.
