Cargill extends timecharter of Diana panamax

Athens: Commodity trader Cargill has extended its charter of a Diana Shipping panamax bulk carrier by a further 15 to 18 months.

The Leto (81,297 dwt, built 2010) was fixed at a rate of $7,100 per day, minus 4.75% commission for third parties.

The vessel was originally fixed in mid-July 2014 on a one-year timecharter to Cargill at a rate of $11,350 per day.

The NYSE-listed company expects the fixture to generate around $3.1m of gross revenue for the 15-month minimum period of the contract.
