The sisterships are part of a four-vessel order placed by owner Briese Schiffahrt. Two vessels, BBC Ukraine and BBC Manilla, were delivered earlier in 2022. BBC Sebastopol and BBC Kherson have now joined the ranks and are recorded on BBC Chartering’s fleet list.


The 12,400 dwt ships are equipped with two Liebherr cranes each capable of lifting 250 tonnes at an outreach of 18 m. Combined, the cranes can lift up to 500 tonnes.
