Diana Shipping Inc., a global shipping company specializing in the ownership and operation of dry bulk vessels, today announced that the company, through a separate wholly-owned subsidiary, took delivery of the m/v Baltimore (formerly Tamou), a 2005 built Capesize dry bulk carrier of 177,243 dwt that the Company entered into an agreement to purchase in April 2013.

The m/v Baltimore is time chartered to RWE Supply & Trading GmbH, Essen, Germany, at a gross charter rate of $15,000 per day, minus a 5% commission paid to third parties, for a period of minimum 36 months to maximum 42 months.
