EuroDry Ltd. has announced today that it has agreed to acquire three Ultramax bulkers, M/V Giants Causeway, a 63 197 DWT dry bulk vessel built in 2015, M/V Sadlers Wells, a 63 153 DWT dry bulk vessel built in 2015 and M/V Gallileo, a 63 177 DWT dry bulk vessel built in 2014, for a total price of about US$65 million.
The vessels are expected to be delivered to the Company during October and November 2023. The acquisitions will be financed by the Company’s own funds and bank debt.
Aristides Pittas, Chairman and CEO of EuroDry, commented:
“We are pleased to announce the acquisition of three Eco Ultramax drybulk vessels, all built during 2014 and 2015. The vessels are sisterships of our own M/V Alexandros P which was built at the same shipyard in 2017. This acquisition further expands our modern fleet cluster at a time when we believe that the market fundamentals, especially the low orderbook, are very supportive of a healthy market over the next two to three years. While demand side -geopolitical and economic- uncertainties remain, we believe that the risks are tilted to the upside and the present level of the market presents a great opportunity to expand our fleet with high quality units of known design. We expect these vessels to make significant contributions to our EBITDA.”
