Rectifying facts surrounding the sale of ‘Max’ container vessels


Following the inaccurate news reports featuring the alleged sale of thirty Vroon container vessels to Sinokor we wish to set the record straight.


Since late 2015 Vroon has been acting as Commercial Manager - providing chartering and operations services - for a fleet of 32 container feeder vessels, whereas OSM has been acting as Ship Manager for these vessels. All these vessels have the prefix ‘MAX’ in their names. These container vessels are part of warehousing structures administered primarily for and on behalf of a German bank. During the past weeks two MAX vessels have been reported sold to Sinokor and it is expected that one will follow shortly. Whether more vessels of the warehousing structures will be sold, when or to whom, remains to be confirmed.


These warehousing structures do not form part of the ongoing restructuring process between Vroon and its lenders. Consequently, the sale of vessels owned by these warehousing structures is completely unrelated to Vroon’s restructuring process.
