Setting a new high in the red hot container segment, Greece’s Dioryx Maritime has found a buyer for its 2009-built, 4,308 teu boxship, the Ionikos. Braemar ACM is reporting the Hanjin Subic-built ship has fetched $96m for a June 2022 delivery.

“A true record and remarkable sale,” Braemar ACM noted in its most recent container update. The price is a stunning figure, $32m more than VesselsValue prices it at, while Maritime Strategies International (MSI) lists the Ionikos as being worth $67.8m.

No name of the buyer has been revealed, although broking sources tell Splash the company is Asia-based.
