Diana Shipping, a global shipping company specializing in the ownership of dry bulk vessels, announced that, through a separate wholly-owned subsidiary, it has entered into a time charter contract with Cargill International S.A., Geneva, for one of its Kamsarmax dry bulk vessels, the m/v Medusa.
The gross charter rate is US$26,000 per day, minus a 4.75% commission paid to third parties, for a period until minimum May 15, 2023 up to maximum July 15, 2023. The new charter period is expected to commence on March 5, 2022. The m/v Medusa is currently chartered, as previously announced, at a gross charter rate of US$11,000 per day, minus a 4.75% commission paid to third parties.

The employment of “Medusa” is anticipated to generate approximately US$11.18 million of gross revenue for the minimum scheduled period of the time charter (i.e. about 430 days).
