The global shipping company specializing in the ownership of dry bulk vessels said in a press release that the gross charter rate is US$12,600 per day, minus a 5% commission paid to third parties, for a period of minimum 12 months to maximum 15 months.

The charter is expected to commence on September 18, 2018. The m/v Artemis is currently chartered, as previously announced, at a gross charter rate of US$9,000 per day, minus a 5% commission paid to third parties.
