London: Glencore Grain (Rotterdam) has fixed a panamax bulker owned by Greece’s Diana Shipping on an 11- to 14-month timecharter.
The Protefs (73,630 dwt, built 2014) was fixed at a gross daily rate of $6,250, commencing April 3.
Diana expects the timecharter to generate $2.06m in gross revenue for the minimum 11-month period.
London-based shipbroker Alibra Shipping today estimates daily rates of $8,550 for a one-year timecharter of a panamax vessel in the Atlantic Basin.
Glencore Grain has recently extended its contracts on three other Diana bulk carriers.
