Courage Marine Group Ltd (HK: 1145; SGX: E91) has acquired MV Hsin Ho, a Panamax-class vessel with a carrying capacity of approximately 72,000 dwt, for a total cash consideration of 8.6 million usd.

40% of the purchase price will be settled by internal resources and 60% will be funded via bank loans, with vessel delivery expected on or before January 16, 2014.

Courage Marine’s fleet currently consists of two Capesize and two Supermax dry bulk carriers, with total tonnage of approximately 417,376 dwt, deployed mainly in Asia.

Courage Marine has been endeavoring to renew its fleet by acquiring newer vessels in place of older ones.

The company previously completed a series of disposals of old vessels and the proceeds of the sales were intended to help acquire vessels when the right opportunity arises.
