The UK-based Carisbrooke Shipping has recently joined to its current fleet eight modern, high quality 8.000-dwt general cargo ships: TIP OSLO, TIP COPENHAGEN, TIP HELSINKI, TIP BREMEN, TIP STOCKHOLM, TIP LEER, TIP EMDEN and CREMONA.
The current Carisbrook fleet includes 60 vessels with a capacity to carry cargoes, between 5.000 and 19.000 DWT. Thirty one of those vessels are smaller with capacity between 6.800 and 8.500 DWT. All 8 new vessels are built in the period from 2003 to 2008.
The new supplements from the TIP fleet are featured with ICE Class 1A flexibility. The vessels have an overall balanced mix of both single & tween-deck, geared or gearless. With these ship characteristics, Carisbrook believes that the new ships will both complement and enhance their current fleet portfolio and thus offer customers enhanced value.
The 8 new additional cargo ships in Carisbrook fleet have been developed in partnership with German & Norwegian Owners.
Mr. James McConachie, Chartering Director at Carisbrooke Shipping commented:
“All of these vessels involve a strong co-operation element, and in this regard, we are absolutely delighted to be an integral part of both Liberty One and Solmunde & Partners’ plans for the future, and believe our shared views of excellence in ship management, aligned with quality, modern tonnage provision, and a mutual understanding based on co-operation, integrity, humility and professionalism, will result in an exceptional end product.”
