Hold on to your hat Bob. Ship demolition prices are extremely volatile and can fluctuate considerably week on week. The supply of tonnage and local steel plate prices have a huge effect and just because prices have improved this week doesn't mean that they will continue to improve. It's a messy situation for sellers who comnitted ships at, say, $300/ldt 3 weeks ago then finding that upon delivery today buyers are reneging on deals because the demo prices and steel plate prices have suddenly dropped. Classic case is the VLCC A Elephant which was comitted in August for $750+ per ldt, failed, was recomitted at around $700/ldt, but when the vessel arrived at Chittagong, prices had dropped so much that the buyers tried to renegotiate. The sellers obviously decided that thay didn't want to receive some $300/ldt less than what was agreed, so they promptly decided to refix the vessel for trade. Then the buyers had the ship arrested......

Or in the dry dock of TERRC Seaton Port, Graythorp Yard, Hartlepool.  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:

Another Bulk Carrier due at Southampton. 35287dwt Broadgate due to 47 berth on the 9th December. I would strongly assume this is for lay-up

With the Margaret Hill, Morning Cloud and Waterford alongside we will have 4 large vessels laid-up in Southampton.

Can any of the more experienced members comment on how this compares to the situation in the 80's?? I can just about recall the Burmah Endeavour being alongside for a few years, but was there much else laid up in Southampton, or any other UK ports?

Hi All,

The CALA POSITANO arrived Saturday Morning (6th) on the Tees. She is currently sitting alongside her sister vessel, CALO PORTOFINO.

As well as Voyager II in KG dock there is Defiant II in Alexander dock since 15th November. These are probably not technically laid up. Voyager is listed on the Humber Shipping movements as 'under arrest', having presumably transgressed some technical or engineering item, and a link to a previous post suggests that the owners of both are in administration. Given that the average administrator probably does not know much about operating bulkers, we could well see them there for a while yet!
