NET ADDITIONS to the drybulk carrier fleet sank to a four-month low in June on lower newbuilding deliveries and higher demolitions.

IHS Fairplay's Sea-web data shows 57 bulkers were delivered in June, while 31 bulkers were scrapped, resulting in net fleet additions of 26 ships.

In February 46 bulkers were delivered, while 33 bulkers were scrapped, creating net fleet additions of 13 ships.

June saw the delivery of 13 Handysizes, 15 Handymaxes, 19 Panamaxes, and 10 Capesizes.

In comparison, May saw the delivery of 67 bulkers comprising 22 Handysizes, 12 Handymaxes, 26 Panamaxes, and seven Capesizes.

June saw the demolition of 18 Handysizes, three Handymax, six Panamaxes and four Capesizes. In comparison, May saw the demolition of 28 ships comprising 17 Handysizes, three Handymaxes, four Panamaxes and four Capesizes.

Drybulk consultancy Commodore Research said: "It is encouraging and not at all surprising that drybulk fleet growth has fallen to a more manageable level. Going forward, drybulk fleet growth is poised to remain relatively low, and as the months progress this will have an even more pronounced effect on the market.

"The second half of this year will see fleet growth remain much lower than fleet growth seen during 1H13. While we are not at full recovery yet, we are finally approaching a more manageable level of growth that has not been seen since 4Q12."

The European Community Shipowners' Association also wants the EU and its members to negotiate with countries in the region the right to use armed guards on vessels trading there when they are deemed to be at risk.

ECSA said in a statement that the Gulf of Guinea's security problems mean that an international naval presence is urgently needed outside of territorial waters.

Longer-term, shore-based measures are also needed to address piracy, but in the meantime EU countries must take "immediate and concrete action", it declared.

Using armed guards could provoke an escalation of violence, the group conceded, but this is still an option owners need, along with other forms of self-protection, it added.

The poor quality of local guards and the difficulties involved in using armed guards in territorial waters now prevent owners from making the maximum effort to assure seafarer safety, warned the group.

It has also called on the EU to extend the mandate of EU NAVFOR Atlanta "at least until 2016", arguing that the current lull in pirate activity in the Gulf of Aden is "easily reversible".
