Capital Product Partners has agreed new contracts and extensions for five of its vessels.
More specifically, the company signed a contract with a major liner operator for either Akadimos or Adonis, both built in 2015 and with a capacity of 9,288 teu. The charter period is for 20 to 24 months at an escalating rate, which is expected to average around $29,800 per day over the firm period. The charter is scheduled to commence in late September.
Moreover, Capital secured extensions for post-panamax containerships Athos, Aristomenis and Athenian for two additional years. Additionally, post panamax containership Akadimos has secured charter employment with a liner operator for a period of about 80 days. The new charter commenced early July 2020.
