Vietnam’s VLCC fleet grows

Greece’s Capital Maritime and Trading has sold the youngest VLCC to be flagged under the Vietnamese flag. 

At the end of last year, Evangelos Marinakis quietly sold a 14-year-old Universal-built mammoth named Alexander the Great, now named Felix, with VesselsValue tagging Phuong Dong Petrol Transport as the buyer. 

Four VLCCs have been sold to Vietnam since 2020. Two 2005-built giants sold by two Greek owners, Eastmed and Thenamaris, went to Viet My Petrol Transportation, while a 2007-built tanker sold by Malaysian account AET went to Sao Viet Petrol Transportation, and the oldest 2003-built ship was sold by Pantheon Tankers to Nhat Viet Transportation.
