Euronav's new VLCC's come from Maersk Tankers

Maersk Tankers is looking for a complete exit from the VLCC segment, where the carrier still has six bareboat vessels on charter. The company has therefore purchased four of the vessels and sold them on to Euronav, which recently announced the acquisition.

Following the divestment of its fleet of 15 supertankers in January Maersk Tankers is now looking to leave the VLCC segment entirely. The carrier still has six VLCC's chartered on bareboat contracts, but the company has now managed to secure a purchasing deal with the current owner, says Maersk Tankers in a statement.

And the carrier does not intend to keep the ships, as they are set to be acquired by Euronav, which also purchased the 15 owned VLCC's  this winter.
