Tomini Sirocco

Tomini Shipping has acquired two handysize vessels

Tomini Shipping, a leading ship-owner and operator, is delighted to introduce the latest additions to its iconic fleet – handysize vessels named ‘Tomini Sirocco’ (38,780 DWT) and ‘Tomini Pampero’ (38,635 DWT). Both vessels were built in 2016 by Taizhou Kouan Shipbuilding Co. Ltd.

This wraps up the biggest Tomini handysize acquisition campaign, with a total of 13 handysize vessels purchased throughout 2022. Current Tomini Shipping fleet consists of 26 vessels, including 3 kamsarmax, 10 ultramax and 13 handysize.

“We see a very positive supply side picture on the handies,” Numair Shaikh, CEO of Tomini Group, said, “with relatively few new builds on order, and an ageing profile of the existing fleet. This leads to greater recycling numbers due to incoming environmental regulations, meaning the fundamentals are very much in favour of a positive handysize segment.”

Tomini Shipping is a world class ship owner and operator, wholly owned by the Shaikh family, the maritime industry is deeply engrained in its cultural heritage. The family has been involved in every aspect of the shipping market for more than 70 years, whilst commercial management is handled through its partners Alpina Chartering in Denmark. The company’s vision is simple – to be the most trusted partner in maritime services for its clients.
