Aries Maritime Transport Limited announced that it has taken delivery of the Chinook, a 2001-built 38,700 dwt double-hulled products tanker. The Chinook was acquired from German owners for $32.6 million. The purchase price is inclusive of the ship's existing time charter with Italian stock listed group Navigazione Montanari at the gross rate of $13,100 per day for the remainder of this year and $13,700 per day until expiration of the contract in January 2007.
