MV Vesper is the latest vessel to join Casper's growing fleet, which now comprises  seven ships. Built in 2006, Vesper is 88.60m LOA (length overall) and is berthed at Douglas in the Isle of Man, from where she trades within the North Sea and Mediterranean Sea alongside the rest of the fleet.

Pete Buffam, managing director of Casper Chartering Limited, said: – “It has been an incredibly busy start to the second quarter of this year, with our fleet spread right across our trading range. Just last month, we ensured the safe delivery of ocean freight including urea, steel coils and grain to several ports such as Denmark, Belgium, Germany, Italy, Egypt and Turkey.

“We are very grateful for the guidance provided by the team at Andrew Jackson Solicitors who were able to move quickly on the purchase of MV Vesper. She is already providing much needed support and has recently returned from the German Port of Mukran, one of our regular trading routes, to transport grain back to Europe.”

Dominic Ward, senior partner and head of shipping and transport, added: – “It has been a pleasure to assist Casper Chartering on its latest vessel purchase.  Having worked with the Casper Group for several years, we are particularly delighted to see them strengthen their position as one of the UK’s leading cargo vessel operators."
