    No anchor handlers at work in North Sea spot market

    News // January 27, 2016

    "Demand for anchor handlers today is as low as it has been in years," said one broker. "There is no major activity expected in the near future either. The layups have helped the over supply of vessels but the steep drop in demand has been disastrous for owners, even with significantly fewer vessels trading the spot."
