The vessel was acquired from Turkish owner Arkas, and has been delivered into the Sima Marine fleet and renamed SM Kaveri. No price was given, while VesselsValue places a market value on the ship of $4.7m.
GFS says the vessel will be phased into its CCG (Colombo – Cochin – Gulf) service and then merge into the India West Coast service route.
Earlier in the month, GFS announced the acquisition of 2002-built 2,764 teu boxship Electra A (renamed SM Mahi), also from Arkas.
