Autopremier / Premier
« on: March 21, 2021, 03:11:35 PM »
The UECC operated vehicle carrier, Autopremier (97/11,591) has been docked at Avonmouth since about 26 February - over three weeks. On AIS she is shown as now being called 'Premier'. Can anyone confirm whether this is in fact the case or whether or not she has been sold to new owners?
Thanks

Piet B

No changes of name or ownership showing yet on Equasis, but they changed the ship's status to "laid up" on 1 March.
And I see that she is tucked away at the end of the dock next to the aggregate berth

Thanks for information guys  - I'd checked out Equasis already. And she was POR (Madeira) registered previously - so no change there either. Interestingly, the UECC website still shows her as Autopremier and part of their fleet. Guess time will tell.

Don't forget that Equasis receives most of its updates of this type from IHS, usually on a weekly datafeed, I think.

UPDATE: Equasis now showing her as 'PREMIER', still owned by Ugland/UECC, but as suggested above, now managed by Matrix Ship Management.

And now (as of 2.1.22) shown on AIS as 'FINO'.  Can't identify new owner/operator, as yet. Any information welcomed.

Noted also that registration was moved from Madeira to Liberia in mid-December. So looks like a trading sale at last.
