The UK Ministry of defense is eyeing to sell its HMS Ocean amphibious assault ship to another government.

It's been reported that Brazillan naval chiefs are keen to buy the 21,500 tonne vessel, based HM Naval Base Devonport, after she is decommissioned by the Royal Navy next year, Plymouth Herald reported last Friday.

According to Brazilian media, government officials said they believe the asking price, which has not been disclosed, is "reasonable" and that they were looking at the possible purchase "with cautious optimism". 

The Ministry of Defence said a "number of options is being considered", adding that selling the vessel to another government was a possibility.
