Euroseas Announces Charter Agreement for Container Ship

Thursday, April 26, 2007
Euroseas Ltd., an owner and operator of drybulk carriers, container ship and multipurpose vessels and provider of seaborne transportation for dry bulk and containerized cargoes, announced today that a subsidiary of the Company has entered into an one-year period time charter agreement with Hull & Hatches Logistics (Dubai) for the M/V Quingdao I, a 1,169 teu, 1990 built feeder container ship, at a gross daily rate of $12,800. The vessel was renamed M/V Ninos. Following this charter, approximately 88% of Euroseas total fleet days in 2007 and, approximately, 40% in 2008 are fixed under period charters, already concluded spot charters, or, otherwise protected from market fluctuations.

The rate of the new charter of M/V Ninos (ex- M/V Quingdao I) represents an improvement of $900 per day over the daily charter rate the vessel earned during a three year period charter that ended in March 2007. After a short charter during April 2007, M/V Ninos completed its intermediate survey and dry-docking; it is scheduled to commence the new charter on April 28, 2007.
