Sale and Purchase Market Report for the Week Ending 23.10.2009 FROM VOGT AND MAGUIRE

A relatively active week in the sale and purchase market with a considerable
number of sales to report. Chinese owners returning to a buying mood after
sometime and are targeting 90's built panamaxes. Vietnamese Buyers are also
becoming more active in the second hand market after concerns that local
shipyard Vinashin might delay some of their newbuilding orders.

At the same time there have been reports that Vinashin has won an order from
a
local Shipowner for 16 bulkers between 34,000 dwt and 56,000 dwt worthing
Usd
450 m.

Prices in the Indian sub-continent have come down and China is becoming more
competitive again with demolition prices ranging between Usd 260/270 per
LDT.
Bangladesh remains the leader in the wet tonnage continuing to offer the
highest prices. After the demolition of the VLCC 'Front Vanadis' there are
only
90 non double hull VLCCs still trading in the world fleet. It is expected
this
number will be further reduced by the end of the year.
