New York-listed bulker owner Diana Shipping has sealed a new time charter contract with Cargill International for the 2010-built kamsarmax Myrsini.
The Greek owner has fixed the 82,100 dwt ship through to between December 1, 2022 and January 31, 2023 at a rate of $22,000 per day. The charter is expected to commence on November 14, 2021.
Diana Shipping said the bulker would generate around $8.29m of revenue on the minimum time charter period. CMB’s Bocimar contracted the Myrsini in May of this year, paying $27,750 per day.
Diana Shipping currently has a fleet of 36 bulk carriers and expects to take delivery of one kamsarmax bulker by the end of February next year. Earlier this year, Cargill took Diana’s 2015-built cape Santa Barbara on charter up to March 2022 at $17,250 per day.
