London-based containership owner Global Ship Lease has signed new charters with Zim for 2000-built 5,936 teu containerships Dimitris Y and Ian H.
The new charters are for a period of 21 to 24 months, and are scheduled to commence in June and July in direct continuation of their current charters.
Ian Webber, CEO of Global Ship Lease, added, “Following the recent re-chartering of the Tasman, we are pleased to announce these new charters to which the Dimitris Y and Ian H will transition seamlessly, incurring no downtime. Our success in consistently concluding attractive charters provides us with additional forward visibility on strong, multi-year cashflows.”
Global Ship Lease says the deal will generated around $4.4m of adjusted EBITDA per vessel based on the median firm period.
