Ship Finance International Limited buys three 9,000-TEU newbuilds

NEW YORK-listed Ship Finance International Limited has announced the acquisition of three 9,000-TEU containerships from an unrelated third party.

The vessels are currently under construction and are expected to be delivered to Ship Finance between fourth quarter and the first quarter of next year.

The vessels have similar technical specifications as our recently delivered 8,700-TEUers, with the latest in eco-design features giving them a very competitive operational performance.

The vessels have been chartered out for a minimum period of five years to a leading European-based container line, with options to extend the charter period by up to two years. 

"Our charter backlog will increase by US$200 million and the aggregate annual EBITDA contribution from the vessels is estimated at more than US$30 million on average during the five year firm period of the charter. The company will arrange financing for the vessels in due course.

"We are pleased to grow our presence in the containership segment with state-of-the-art vessels, and expand our chartering counterparties with one of the leading container lines," said Ship Finance Management CEO Ole Hjertaker. 

Ship Finance owns 75 vessels: 19 tankers (VLCC and Suezmax), two chemical tankers, 22 dry-bulkers, 17 box ships, two car carriers, six offshore supply vessels, two jack-up drilling rigs and two ultra-deepwater semi-submersible drilling rigs. 

The fleet is one of the largest in the world and most of the vessels are employed on long-term charters.
