zoom Greek shipowner and operator Navios Maritime Partners has continued its shopping spree as the company signed an agreement to purchase a Capesize bulk carrier.Featuring 178,132 dwt, the vessel was bought from Italy-s shipping firm Rizzo Bottiglieri for a price of USD 27.5 million, according to data provided by VesselsValue.The ship in question is reportedly the 2010-built Cavaliere Grazia Bottiglieri, which is expected to join its new owner during the third quarter of 2017. Following this acquisition, the company will control a fleet of 34 vessels.Navios Partners said that the Capesize is expected to generate some USD 3.7 million of annual EBITDA based on current rate environment, assuming operating expenses approximating current operating costs and 360 revenue days.The company will finance the acquisition with cash on its balance sheet and bank debt on terms consistent with its existing credit facilities.Just last week, the Greek owner reached an agreement to acquire the entire container fleet consisting of fourteen ships from Rickmers Maritime for about USD 113 million.“We anticipate acquiring five 4,250 TEU vessels on May 15, 2017. These vessels are employed on charters that have staggered expirations in 2018 and early 2019 at a net daily charter rate of USD 26,850,” Angeliki Frangou, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Navios Partners, said.The average age of the fleet, which consists of eleven 4,250 TEU containerships and three 3,450 TEU vessels, is 9.5 years.

Bahamian music legend gunned down at home in Turks and Caicos Related Items:bahamas, perry christie, value added tax, wendy craigg Recommended for you Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppNassau, 05 Jan 2015 – Mrs. Wendy Craigg, having completed her statutory term as the Governor of the Central Bank of the Bahamas, demitted office on December 31st 2015. Of special historical significance, Mrs. Craigg was the first female to hold this vitally important post in our national financial system. Moreover, she served with utmost distinction throughout her 10 year tenure as Governor and indeed in her prior post as Deputy Central Bank Governor as well.It is particularly laudable that Mrs. Craigg, a career central banker, worked tirelessly to ensure that the regulatory infrastructure for banks and trust companies in The Bahamas conformed to evolving international standards and best practices. At the same time she also saw to it that the monetary stability of The Bahamas was maintained by the application of sound and sensible monetary policies and standards.I applaud Mrs. Craigg for these outstanding achievements and thank her for her many years of dedicated service and unblemished integrity at the helm of the Central Bank. She has been a great credit not only to the Central Bank but to our entire nation.I am pleased that Mrs. Craigg will continue to be of service to our nation as an Economic Policy Advisor in the Office of the Prime Minister.I would also like to congratulate the new incoming Governor of the Central Bank, Mr. John Rolle, who formerly held the post of Financial Secretary and as such was the administrative leader of the Ministry of Finance. Indeed Mr. Rolle played a pivotal role in the implementation of recent public finance reforms, most notably, the introduction of the Value Added Tax (VAT) regime. For that and for his many other sterling contributions to nation-building while at the Ministry of Finance, I thank Mr. Rolle most sincerely.In a very real sense, however, Mr. Rolle, in assuming his new role as the Governor of the Central Bank with immediate effect, is returning home. He, too, is a career central banker, and as such is ideally suited to his new appointment. I wish him well and predict that he will bring to this high office the same integrity, discipline, intellectual ability and expert grasp of monetary policy that distinguished his predecessor, Mrs. Wendy Craigg.
