Baleria, Aramas, GNV and Moby would be ideal buyers for SFX

Balearia and Armas maybe although hard to say with existing newbuilding plans that they would want her.
GNV operate exclusively overnight and she's now effectively a day ship so not really suited unless they want to do a load of work.
Moby have no money and are looking to sell rather than buy.

Totally agree.

Moby's financial situation does not make happy reading.  Despite selling vessels they are still losing a lot of money.  They are trying to turn things around of course, but any acquisitions would need to be on attractive terms (more attractive than keeping current tonnage).  Stena aren't known for selling cheap!!!  They also have two (Chinese financed) new builds coming in a few years.  I really can't see Balearia being interested at all given their recent acquisitions and LNG retrofits.  Not really sure where Armas would find SFX of use but I'm not that familiar with their operations.
