Local Shipping – Bunkering tanker ENDO SCIROCCO – 03.12.2020

One of the latest ships added to the Maltese Registry is the 23 years old oil product tanker ENDO SCIROCCO. She arrived at Grand Harbour, Malta late August as GALWAY FISHER part of James Fisher Everard (JFE) and berthed at MMH Facilities.

The sale of the GALWAY FISHER was done on Friday 11th September in Malta,  after JFE initially tested purchase interest on the buyers’ market last year. 

JFE currently operates 16 double-hulled tankers responsible for transporting highly flammable cargoes of petrol, diesel, kerosene and marine gasoil. JFE’s vessels typically trade across the European coastline, with three of its tankers responsible for trading worldwide and in the Caribbean. The sale of the GALWAY FISHER was a necessary measure, as the vessel was approaching her maximum trading age of which JFE’s charterers can accept for north-western Europe trading contracts.  

She was built in China by Qiuxin Shipyad at Shanghai originally as WHEELSMAN. ENDO SCIROCCO was acquired by Endo Three Maritime Ltd. She’s to be time chartered to companies forming part of the related Palm Group and used for transportation of petroleum products including bunkering operations both within territorial waters (wtw) and outside territorial waters (otw).
