CPP Awaits Two New Tankers

Monday, September 17, 2007
Capital Product Partners L.P. announced that the deliveries of its eleventh and twelfth medium range (MR) product tankers, M/T "Apostolos" and M/T "Anemos I", from Hyundai Mipo Dockyard Ltd., a Korean shipyard, have been confirmed, ahead of the anticipated time of delivery, for September 20 and September 28, 2007, respectively.

M/T "Apostolos" and M/T "Anemos I" are ice strengthened vessels (Ice Class 1A) and have carrying capacities of 47,782 dwt and 47,823 dwt, respectively. Both vessels are capable of carrying a range of refined oil products, chemicals (including ethanol and biodiesel feedstock), and crude oil worldwide. Both M/T "Apostolos" and M/T "Anemos I" have been fixed under time charters with Morgan Stanley Capital Group Inc. for three years at a base rate of $20,000 per day, subject to a profit sharing arrangement which allows each party to share, at a 50/50 percentage, additional revenues when spot rates are higher than the base rate. The purchase price for the two vessels of $56 million each will be fully funded through a drawdown on the existing revolving credit facility.

The M/T "Apostolos" and M/T "Anemos I" are the third and fourth out of seven additional MR product tankers that Capital Product Partners L.P. has agreed to purchase from Capital Maritime & Trading Corp. The remaining three product tankers will be 51,000 dwt MR chemical/product tanker sister vessels that are scheduled for delivery in January, June and August 2008, all of which will be under bareboat charters commencing at the time of delivery.
