Panamax rates held their ground Thursday as Asia-to-Australia roundtrips kept vessels in the sector active but did little to help capesize activity.

The day also saw Rizzo-Bottiglieri De Carlini Armatori scoop up a kamsarmax for a year's trading.


A single cape found work Thursday, but the 16-year-old bulker earned a far lower rate than the latest spot deals.

Hanjin Shipping is taking Zodiac Maritime Agency's 161,000-dwt Cape Eagle (built 1993) from Asia to Australia and back for just $64,000 per day.

In the last spot capesize fixture, Rio Tinto booked the 178,000-dwt Madeira (built 2007) on Friday for $95,000 per day.

Still, the Cape Eagle is a far older vessel, and the Baltic Capesize Index rose 111 points, or 1.7%.


Rizzo-Bottiglieri is paying $24,000 per day to put Neda Maritime Agency's 82,800-dwt Ellina (built 2008) to work for 11 to 12 months.

In a two-day-old fixture not reported until Thursday, Kitaura Kaiun's 76,600-dwt Coral Diamond (built 2007) will be in the hands of Oldendorff for two to three months at a price of $18,000 per day.

Oldendorff also grabbed the day's biggest panamax spot charter, as it pays $27,000 per day to take Hung Fu Shipping's 75,600-dwt Carol (built 1999) on two laden legs beginning in Sweden.

Ten panamaxes were booked to travel from Asia to Australia and back, earning between $15,000 and $26,000 per day. All but a few were above $22,000 per day.

A Chinese charterer is paying $26,000 per day to take Diana Shipping's 74,400-dwt Coronis (built 2006), while busy Oldendorff grabbed the 76,600-dwt Fair Lady (built 2005) for $24,000 per day.

On the low end, Polish Steamship's 73,500-dwt Szare Szeregi (built 1991) fetched $17,800 per day from an unnamed charterer, while the elderly 64,400-dwt Ienao (built 1995) is earning $15,500 per day from Danzas to visit Australia's East Coast.

Elsewhere, the 73,700-dwt Aeolian Spirit (built 1999) is earning $26,000 per day plus a $500,000 ballast bonus to travel from Praia Mole to Singapore or Japan.

Among two round trips to the East Coast of South America, Enterprises Shipping's 73,000-dwt Brugge Max (built 1998) fetched $22,000 per day from Louis Dreyfus. Raffles is paying $21,500 per day for Mitsubishi's 72,500-dwt Spring Peacock (built 1998).


While one supramax rate beat out all in the panamax sector, some cheaper fixtures brought the average slightly down.

STX Pan Ocean is paying $31,000 per day to take the 53,200-dwt Eleanor D (built 2009) from the Eastern Mediterranean to the Black Sea and past Muscat.

Jinhui Shipping's 52,000-dwt Jin Yao (built 2004) is fetching $24,000 per day to travel from Cape Town to the East Coast of South America and back to Singapore.

Further down in rates, however, Swiss Marine is paying $14,250 per day for a ride from South Africa to Europe on Marmaras Navigation's 51,500-dwt Maria D (built 2002).
