Seanergy Maritime Holdings Corp. has announced the delivery of a previously-announced Capesize vessel acquisition, M/V Dukeship, and the simultaneous commencement of its time charter employment.
The M/V Dukeship, a 181 500-DWT Capesize bulk carrier, built in 2010 by Sasebo Heavy Industries in Japan, was delivered to Seanergy on 26 November 2021 and has already commenced the time charter with its charterers, NYK, for a term of approximately 13 to 18 months. The gross daily rate is based at a premium over the Baltic Capesize Index.
Following this delivery, the seventh in 2021 to-date, Seanergy’s fleet has increased to 17 Capesize vessels with an aggregate cargo carrying capacity that exceeds 3 million DWT.
Stamatis Tsantanis, the company’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated:
“I am very pleased with the final delivery of our 17th Capesize vessel in a great market timing. The Dukeship already commenced its time-charter with a world-renowned charterer.
“Our fleet is now 100% under period employment, with the vast majority on index-linked time contracts. The current Baltic Capesize Index is US$37 600/d.”
