Dolphin Tanker is a joint venture between Luigi D'Amato , President of Fratelli D'Amato International group and Paolo Scerni, President of Scerni Group. Dolphin Tanker s.r.l. is a 50% joint venture between Scerni Group and Fratelli D'Amato S.p.a. Il Cavaliere del Lavoro (Knight of Labor) Luigi D’Amato serves as the President. Fratelli D'Amato Spa is fully owned by Luigi D'Amato, who is also the sole administrator.
Dolphin Tankers – a joint venture between Luigi D’Amato, president of Fratelli D’Amato International Group, and Paolo Scerni, president of Scerni Group - which presently owns 6 tankers, might come to an end by mutual consent. Although neither of the partner were willing to comment, it seems that at the root of this decision there are different strategic views. These would include the fate of the 3 VLCCs ordered in summer 2008 from the Korean shipyard STX (whose delivery is confirmed at the moment but delayed to 2013 and 2014), compounded with the current poor shape of the liquid bulk market.
Not even a personal letter from Paolo Scerni’s father, Gianni, to Luigi D’Amato, was able to remedy the disagreement between the two presidents. Banks which granted credit lines for the ships in the past years – i.e., Milan-based Centrobanca, Genoa-based Banca Carige, and Deutsche Bank AG – have been informed of the ongoing restructuring, necessary in order to preserve the earnings from a pool of ships which made last year a 4 million euros profit.
Most probably, the break-up of Dolphin Tankers will include the even split of its fleet, currently made of 3 pairs of sisterships. They are the 72,300 dwt Panamaxes White Dolphin and Blue Dolphin, built in 2003, which were offered last March to the Chilean oil company Empresa Nacional del Petrolio for 32 million dollars in a bid eventually won by another owner, and the 4 Aframaxes of Chinese make, i.e., 104,225 dwt Enrica Lexie and Savina Caylyn Shanghai built in 2008 at the Waigaoqiao Shipbuilding shipyard, and 109,000 dwt D.T. Mariano and D.T. Vincenzo P. built in 2009 at the Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding shipyard. Given their young age and the ongoing market prices, these four ships are likely the most alluring to investors with adequate financial means.

ITALY’S Dolphin Tankers has had its assets split up by its co-owners. The venture between Luigi D’Amato, president of Fratelli D’Amato International, and Paolo Scerni, president of Scerni, was formed in 2002. Since then, it has owned eight Panamaxes and four Aframaxes, with three 320,000dwt VLCCs still on order at STX yard in South Korea. Six of the Panamaxes were sold before the company was dissolved. The companies have agreed that D’Amato will take two of the Aframaxes and two of the VLCCs on order. Scerni will receive the two remaining Panamaxes and one of the VLCCs. It has also paid $20M to Fratelli D’Amato to balance the deal.
