Courage Marine Group Ltd (HK: 1145; SGX: E91) has acquired MV Hsin Ho, a Panamax-class vessel with a carrying capacity of approximately 72,000 dwt, for a total cash consideration of 8.6 million usd.

40% of the purchase price will be settled by internal resources and 60% will be funded via bank loans, with vessel delivery expected on or before January 16, 2014.
