Euroseas to Purchase Drybulk Carrier

June 12, 2009

Euroseas Ltd. (NASDAQ:ESEA) signed a memorandum of agreement to purchase a Panamax drybulk carrier of 74,020 dwt, built in 2000 in Japan, for approximately $27.5 million. The vessel comes with a time charter back to the seller until January 2010 at a gross daily rate of $25,200 per day and is expected to be delivered to the Company between July 1, 2009 and August 5, 2009. Following the delivery of the vessel, approximately 74% of Euroseas' total fleet days remaining in 2009 and approximately 40% in 2010 will be fixed under time charters, FFA contracts, already concluded spot charters, or otherwise protected from market fluctuations.

"We are delighted to announce the acquisition of a 9-year old Japanese built Panamax drybulk carrier as part of our fleet expansion program. The accompanying time charter until January 2010 to a solid counterparty improves and provides further visibility to our 2009 earnings," said Aristides Pittas, Chairman and CEO of Euroseas (ESEA).
