Diana Containerships charters post-panamax to Maersk

Diana Containerships has fixed a post-panamax boxship on a six- to nine-month timecharter to Maersk.

The Great (5,576 teu, built 2004) was fixed at a gross rate of $14,750 per day, minus a 5% commission for third parties, commencing August 15.

After the maximum nine-month period of the charter has been completed, Maersk has the option to extend the contract by a further nine months, plus or minus thirty days, at a gross daily rate of $21,000.

NASDAQ-listed Diana expects the charter to generate gross revenue of around $2.66m for the minimum six-month charter period.
