he Owner Principalβ€™s involvement in shipping can be traced back to 1960 at which time they first utilised Tropis Shipping as their shipbrokers in London.
Tropis subsequently merged with two other companies and their Principals embarked on a new building program.
In 1986, Tropis again started operating independently and became Cape Shippingβ€™s London shipbroking agents in 1987 (for chartering, operations, sale and purchase), when Cape Shipping became managers of the Principalβ€™s vessels.
Over the years, the companies have managed, operated, chartered a variety of ships which have ranged in size from Liberties, IHI Freedom Tweendeckers, Handy Sizes , up to Panamaxes, Capesizes and VLCCs.
For many years the core of the managed fleet was made up of 15000 mt DWT IHI Freedom Tweendeckers. Although these ships were over 30 years old when they were relised, they were still able to trade to Europe in particular U.K. (Tate and Lyle refinery London), Finland, Sweden, France, Italy, Spain, Germany and USA.
