Singapore-listed Indonesian owner Samudera Shipping Line has added two 1,500 TEUs containership vessels to its fleet. Samudera said that it entered into agreements for the acquisition of the two container vessels earlier this month.
The two new vessels bought for an aggregate acquisition price of just under $60m, will be delivered in the second half of the year.
The acquisition of the two vessels is part of the “ordinary course of business” and the company’s existing principal business, Samudera said in an SGX filing.
Samudera said in a separate filing that it incorporated one wholly-owned subsidiary in Singapore. On June 16, the company incorporated a ship owning business named Samudera Ships Investment.
Last month, the company added a liquefied petroleum gas carrier new build from Japan for $26.2m. The unit is under construction at Japan’s Sasaki Zosen shipyard and should be delivered in the second quarter of this year.
At the beginning of the year, Samudera Shipping Line announced that it bought two 1,900 TEUs containership new builds for around $66m. The units will be delivered in the fourth quarter of 2024 and early 2025.
