Genco Shipping & Trading Limited announced it has reached an agreement in principle to extend the time charter for the Genco Success, a 1997-built Handymax vessel currently on charter with Korea Line Corporation. The extended time charter would be for an additional eleven to thirteen months at a rate of $24,000 per day, less a 5 percent third party brokerage commission.
