The Hamburg shipping company Peter Döhle is back on the second-hand market as a buyer. Three ships were acquired from the Marinakis company Capital Product Partners.

According to broker reports, the Hamburg-based shipping company Döhle is adding a trio of ships to its fleet. These are said to be three “Samsung 9500” types built in 2011. The purchase price is quoted at 51 million dollars per unit.

The seller is the shipping company Capital Product Partners, owned by Greek tycoon Evangelos Marinakis. According to reports, the existing charter contracts of up to five years are also part of the transaction. The three ships are currently in service with Hapag-Lloyd.

Döhle is the 11th largest tramp shipping company

After overcoming difficulties in the crisis years after 2008, Peter Döhle remains one of the largest ship owners and ship managers in Germany. The group, including Ernst Russ, is listed by Alphaliner with 76 ships and a capacity of around 238,000 TEU. That is 11th place among the world’s leading tramp shipping companies, directly behind Claus-Peter Offen (282,000 TEU).

Marinakis is currently realigning its investments. The shipping company Capital Product Partners, which is listed on the US stock exchange, is in the process of disposing of its entire fleet of 15 container ships. Instead, Marinakis is focusing on the energy sector and gas tankers. He recently ordered four newbuildings in China.
