Allseas Marine orders two ships at Guangzhou Wenchong

Allseas Marine, a Greek non-operating owner, is believed to have firmed up orders for two 1,700 teu container vessels at the Guangzhou Wenchong Shipyard in China. The ships are believed to be of the GW 1700 MK-II Bangkokmax design, a slightly smaller lower draft variant of the better known GW 1700 MK-I type of which the yard built close to 70 units since the year 2000.

The Allseas newbuildings are scheduled for delivery in September and December of 2015. In addition to the first pair, the Greek owners are said to hold options for another two sisters of the type, which, if taken up, would be delivered in 2016.
