      集装箱船租赁公司塞斯潘(Seaspan Corp.)的新任首席执行官陈兵表示,由于对新船的需求减少,许多船舶脱离了长期租船合同,塞斯潘在二手市场上可能会有更多的机会。
 
      陈兵指出,新集装箱船价格大幅下跌,“过去几年集装箱船订单数占全球船队的比例一直在下降”。他认为长远来看,这对行业来说可能是件好事,因为这会使船舶的供需更加平衡。
 
      塞斯潘希望随着时间的推移寻找新的商机。陈兵表示他相信“从目前的市场形势来看,二手船较新船更吃香。”
 
      作为例子,他提到2月5日宣布的一项交易。该交易收购了两艘2006年建造的2,500个标准箱的支线船,将它们租给马士基船队,租期为四年,并且持有马士基以更高的租金费率将租船期延长两年的选项。
   
       Seaspan是目前世界上最大的集装箱船租赁公司,旗下船队规模达112艘——其中94艘船舶为该公司所拥有,另外18艘是代为其他公司管理的船舶。

Seaspan: Second-hand containerships may be more attractive than newbuilds
 
Bing Chen, the new chief executive officer of the containership lessor Seaspan Corp., which in the past, has primarily invested in new ships that it charters to liner companies, says with demand for new ships reduced and many ships coming off long-term charters, there may be more opportunities for his company in the second-hand market.
 
New containership prices have fallen sharply, but “the containership order book as a percentage of the global fleet has been on a decline for the last few years,” Chen noted. He said that may be ultimately a good thing for the industry because it will lead to a better balance between ship supply and demand.
   
Seaspan expects to find new ship chartering opportunities over time. He said he believes "the current dynamics present more attractive growth in second-hand vessels."
   
As an example, he pointed to a deal announced Feb. 5 where it acquired two 2006-built 2,500-TEU geared feeder ships and chartered them to Maersk for four years, with an option for Maersk to extend the charter for two additional years at a higher rate. 
  
Seaspan is the largest containership lessor with a 112-ship fleet - 94 ships that it owns and 18 ships that it manages for other companies.
