One unit of 13,400tdw multi-purpose cargo ship, that SOMEC ordered for its Europe-based client, was built at Kyokuyo Shipyard and named "Sally Ann-C" in the end of January. It was actually a complicated combo deal, as the ship, 4th sister for the same owner, was sold to a domestic client on delivery and time-chartered back to the original owner for a long-term basis.
SOMEC has also placed an order for one more sister ship to be built by Kyokuyo with delivery in 2009. This ship will be owned by another domestic shipowner and time-chartered to the said European owner-operator.
