The newbuilt 36,000 dwt chemical tanker Bow Proper was delivered from yard on February 19, and enters Odfjell’s fleet on bareboat charter. With this, another step is taken in our extensive fleet renewal program.

Bow Prosper is built at the Fukuoka shipyard in Nagasaki, Japan. The design and construction process has been run in close cooperation between the yard, Odfjell and ship owner Taihei, and the result is a highly advanced and energy-efficient chemical tanker. The vessel is tailor-made for round-the-world chemical tanker trading, including thermal oil heating capacity. 

Bow Prosper is commercially managed by Odfjell Tankers, technically managed by our Ship Management department and manned by Odfjell seafarers. She will fly the Norwegian flag.
