The COSCO Faith is on charter to COSCO Container Lines Co., Ltd. ("COSCON") under a twelve-year, fixed-rate time charter. The ship is the sixth of eight 13100 TEU sister ships and the 16th of a total of 18 vessels to be chartered by Seaspan to COSCON.

Seaspan's operating fleet of 67 vessels has an average age of approximately five years and an average remaining charter period of approximately seven years.
