The ships in question are 32,400 dwt Clipper Panorama and Clipper Selo, each bought for USD 10.1 million, data from VesselsValue shows.
The two ships were built in 2011 by Chinese shipbuilder Jiangmen Nanyang.
Clipper Group did not want to comment on the report, while Pacific Basin is yet to provide World Maritime News with a comment on the reported sale.
The Hong Kong-based owner operates a fleet of over 250 ships, including 106 owned ships.
The owned fleet is composed of 80 Handymaxes, 25 Supramaxes and one Post Panamax ship, including newbuildings, based on the data from the company’s website.
