Cypriot shipowner Unibaltic Shipping Ltd, with Polish roots and fleet management in Szczecin, announced on social media on Friday, November 26, the sale of the oldest vessel in its fleet.
The vessel, in Unibaltic colours, had made 325 voyages and had been employed for three and a half years on time charter by reputable charterers, the Szczecin-based shipowner reported.
