HYUNDAI Merchant Marine (HMM) is to take delivery of the Hyundai Victory, the fourth of five 13,100-TEU ships ordered in August 2011 from Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering.

The shipping line paid a total of US$129 million per ship, reported Alphaliner. The newbuilding will be deployed on the G6 Asia-Europe Loop 7.

This delivery follows that of the Hyundai Drive, delivered two weeks ago. The last ship, the Hyundai Pride, is due to be delivered in late July.

These five newbuildings, controlled by HMM, add to five ships of the same size delivered in 2012 by the Hyundai Samho shipyard and financed by interests related to Greek owner Danaos.
