Hi Rick,
Indeed all eight have been sold to Maersk.
What I understand is that Maersk will only do the management of 5 of them (most probably also only 5 under Danish flag).
The remaining three will be managed by a German ship management company.
Cheers,
Roy

Before we talk about the 'slow demise' of Rickmers, Bertram Rickmers this week signed contracts for 2 x 1,162 TEU feeder containerships with Fujian Mawei Shipbuilding Co, China. The signing ceremony was held in Rickmers' Hamburg office on Monday.
