Two Greek owners, Embiricos and Thenamaris, have been linked to two ships each from a quartet of kamsarmax bulkers sold by US-based Liberty Maritime.
Brokers say that the two Greek outfits have taken four 82,000dwt bulkers, built in 2012 and 2013. The price is between US$12m and US$13m per bulker.
Thenamaris has been active in the sale and purchase market lately while this appears to be Embiricos' first purchase of the year.
Embiricos is split between Greece's Aeolos Management and Monaco-based International Maritime Enterprises.
