Diana Shipping announced that, through a separate wholly-owned subsidiary, it has entered into a time charter contract with Hudson Shipping Lines Incorporated for one of its Panamax dry bulk vessels, the m/v Thetis.

According to the global shipping company specializing in the ownership of dry bulk vessels, the gross charter rate is US$10,650 per day, minus a 3.75% commission paid to third parties, for a period of minimum 14 months to maximum 17 months.

The charter is expected to commence tomorrow. The m/v Thetis was chartered, as previously announced, to Ausca Shipping Limited, Hong Kong, at a gross charter rate of US$8,350 per day, minus a 5% commission paid to third parties.

The “Thetis” is a 73,583 dwt Panamax dry bulk vessel built in 2004.
