Greek owner Capital Product Partners (CPP) has won new time charter contracts for two boxships and sealed an extension for one of its tankers.
MSC has taken 2006-built 8,266 teu containership Archimidis on charter for two years at $18,000 per day. The charter commences at the end of May after the vessel comes off charter to Singapore’s PIL who were paying just $8,250 per day.
PIL has however extended the charter of 2007-built 8,266 teu containership Agamemnon for an additional eleven to thirteen months at a daily rate of $20,000. The extension commences during May, and at a rate significantly higher than the $8,250 PIL was previously paying for the vessel.
Lastly, Stena Bulk has chartered 2015-built chemical/product tanker Active for a minimum of two to a maximum of twelve months at a rate ranging between $15,000 and $16,000 per day. The charter will commence late May 2018 after the vessel comes off a short-term charter to Louis Dreyfus Company Suisse, who were paying $13,000 per day for the vessel.
CPP posted its first quarter results yesterday, with revenues of $53.9m resulting in a net income of $5.3m.
