Castor Maritime Inc., a diversified global shipping company, has announces that it has entered, through a separate wholly-owned subsidiary, into an agreement to purchase a 2010 Korean-built Kamsarmax dry bulk carrier from an unaffiliated third-party for a purchase price of US$14.8 million.
The acquisition is expected to be consummated by taking delivery of the vessel sometime in the end of the first quarter or beginning of the second quarter of this year and is subject to the satisfaction of certain customary closing conditions.

We are working diligently in identifying and taking advantage of attractive opportunities presented to us across vessel sizes and segments.”
