Aries Maritime Transport Limited announced it has renewed the bareboat charters for the Stena Compass, a 2006-built double-hull products tanker, and its sister ship, the Stena Compassion, with Stena Group. The charters will be for 23 to 25 months at a gross rate of $18,700 per day per vessel, less

Aries and the charterer mutually agreed to the redelivery following damage to the main engine of the vessel, which will undergo repairs that are expected to be completed by the end of August 2008.
