DFDS sell Flandria Seaways

Copenhagen, 2015-03-27 14:08 CET (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Announcement no. 25

DFDS has today entered into an agreement to sell the ro-ro freight ship Flandria Sea-ways following an optimisation of the allocation of the fleet deployed by the route network on the North Sea.

The freight capacity of the ship, built in 2000, is 1,692 lane metres.

The sales price of the ship was DKK 90m. The profit on the sale of the ship is expected to be approximately DKK 14m.

The sale does not entail changes to the previously announced expectations for 2015.

Chinese built Flandria Seaways is of course a near sister to the slightly older Japanese built Stena Hibernia and Stena Scotia, and also a sister to Anglia Seaways, which recently operated for Seatruck from Warrenpoint.
