Atlantic Shipping can proudly announce that we have brokered the swap deal between the companies K. Halstensen from Bekkjarvik, Norway and Rederiet Ruth A/S from Hirtshals, Denmark. K. Halstensen is buying M/V Ruth and Rederiet Ruth A/S is buying M/V Slaatterøy.
M/V Ruth was built at Karstensens shipyard in Denmark in 2016 and is 87.80 x 16.70 m, making it one of the largest pelagic vessels in Norway. M/V Slaatterøy is 67.40 x 13.00 m and was built at Slipen Mek. Verksted AS in Norway in 1997.
M/V Slaatterøy will be the intermediate vessel fishing Ruth's quotas until an upgraded version of M/V Ruth will be delivered from Karstensens Shipyard in 2021. The new Ruth will be even larger at 89.35 x 17.00 m.
Atlantic Shipping would like to thank the people from K. Halstensen, Rederiet Ruth and other involved parties for good cooperation during the sales and delivery process. Atlantic Shipping also wishes the owners the best of luck with their new vessels.
