Greek dry bulk owner Diana Shipping has sealed a new time charter contract with Glencore Agriculture for 2009-built kamsarmax Maia.
The new charter commenced this week at a gross rate of $13,300 per day through to the first quarter of 2020. Glencore was previously paying $10,125 per day for the vessel.
The deal will generate around $5.44m based on the minimum time charter period.
Broking sources have linked the Triton to Aims Shipping. Establish by ex-EastMed execs Stefanos Pesmazoglou and Michael Stasinopoulos in 2011, Aims Shipping lists a fleet of seven vessels on its website made up of five bulkers and two containerships.
