Greek dry bulk owner Diana Shipping has announced the sale of one of its vessels, and the charter of another.
The company has sold 2002-built capesize bulker Norfolk to an unnamed third party for $9.35m. The vessel, which is valued at $9.4m by MSI, will be delivered to the buyer before February 25.
Diana Shipping has also sealed a charter with Aquavita International for 2009-built kamsarmax Maia. The charter commenced yesterday and is for 14-16 months at a rate of $11,200 per day. The vessel was previously on charter to Glencore at $13,300 per day.
The capesize sale will leave Diana Shipping with 13 capesizes in a dry bulk fleet of 41 vessels.
