Fleetscape provides $190 million on a ten vessel transaction

In February 2019, Fleetscape agreed to acquire five aframax tankers and five suezmax tankers built 2009-2012 in sale and leaseback transaction with Advantage Tankers LLC (“Advantage”).


Total acquisition price was US$323 million. The vessels were leased back to the seller on a five-year basis with a purchase obligation at maturity.

Fleetscape has subsequently increased the financing transaction by US$16.4m to fund the installation of scrubbers on seven of the vessels.
