FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


                  KNIGHTSBRIDGE TANKERS LIMITED
                            announces
                        Cash Distribution


Hamilton, Bermuda, January 16, 2001:   Knightsbridge Tankers
Limited ("Knightsbridge") announced that its Board of Directors
has declared a cash distribution, in the amount of US$1.68 per
share. The cash distribution will be payable on or about February
9, 2001, to shareholders of record as of January 26, 2001. The
declaration of the cash distribution follows the calculation by
Knightsbridge of the payment of charterhire due from Shell
International Petroleum Company Limited ("Shell International"),
a member of the Royal Dutch/Shell Group of Companies, for the
period from October 1, 2000 to December 31, 2000. Shell
International bareboat charters five double hull very large crude
carriers (VLCCs) from Knightsbridge on a "hell and high water"
basis for a minimum seven year term, with an option for Shell
International to extend the period for each VLCC for an
additional seven year term, to a maximum of 14 years per VLCC.
The charter hire payable by Shell International is the greater of
a guaranteed minimum rate or a spot market related rate. The spot
market related rate for the fourth quarter of 2000, as determined
by the London Tanker Brokers' Panel exceeds the guaranteed
minimum rate by US$45,576 per vessel per day.

Knightsbridge's Common Shares trade on the Nasdaq National Market
under the symbol "VLCCF".
