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. Due to schedule maintenance, the vessel is expected to be delivered to the charterers on July 2, 2013.

This employment is anticipated to generate approximately $16.2 million of gross revenue for the minimum scheduled period of the charter, the company said.

Including the newly-delivered m/v Baltimore, Diana Shipping Inc.'s  fleet currently consists of 33 dry bulk carriers (two Newcastlemax, nine Capesize, three Post-Panamax, two Kamsarmax and 17 Panamax). The company also expects to take delivery of one Panamax vessel during September 2013, 2 new-building Ice Class Panamax vessels during the fourth quarter of 2013 and the first quarter of 2014 and two new-building Newcastlemax  vessels during the second quarter of 2016. The combined carrying capacity of Diana's current fleet, excluding the five vessels not yet delivered, is approximately 3.7 million dwt with a weighted average age of 6.3 years.
