Sale and Purchase Market Report for the Week Ending 02.04.2010

Good specification dry tonnage remains very much in demand, although less
deals have emerged this week in comparison to recent times. Prices remain
firm and in line with recently established levels. In the container market,
prices are generally improving. Interestingly there are few, if any, large
modern container vessels available for sale and an increasing number of
potential purchasers looking to buy, in the belief that sale prices have now
reached the bottom. The wet market remains quiet with no major deals to

Newbuilding enquiry and contracts remain at healthy levels. Yard orderbooks
are starting to look a lot better with all 2011 berths in Korea now
reportedly gone and most in China. This week has seen the reported order of
seven kamsarmaxes at the Korean Shipyard SPP by European owners. The Korean
yard is said to be pricing the vessels at excess Usd 36 million per vessel.

Demolition prices remain very firm with a couple of tanker vessels reported
sold as is Singapore and Fujairah for the extremely good price of Usd 465
per lt. Whether the market can sustain such prices remains to be seen.
Possibly in the short term, as breakers remain keen to secure tonnage before
the monsoon season. Chinese breakers continue to struggle to compete and as
a result activity in this market remains weak.
