Maritime has dished out an extraordinary $100,000 per day for an Atlantic capesize roundtrip which, coupled with strong Pacific activity, drove the index up over 500 points.

The George Economou-led company has been at the forefront when it comes to leading the dry-bulk rebound with numerous other fixtures in the last weeks and months raising the bar.

The panamax market was not as buoyant but there were some rates either side of $30,000 a day.


The Japanese 180,000-dwt Gracious Eternity (built 2009) is the one being taken by Classic for a trip from Europe to Brazil and back at a vast $100,000 a day.

Mining major BHP Billiton staged a huge raid on the capesize market last week and returned to book the 170,700-dwt CSK Grandeur (built 2000) from China to Australia and back at $67,000. The 150,800-dwt C. Polaris (built 1995) got $3,000 a day more for a similar itinerary from BHP.

Rival Rio Tino spent a comparatively low $59,500 per day for the same voyage with the 149,700-dwt Coppersmith (built 1995).

The period market was quiet with Hong Xiang paying $26,000 a day for 11 to 13 months with the 147,500-dwt Ocean Enery (built 1990).


Cargill is avoiding the Gulf of Aden as it takes the 75,800-dwt Navios Cielo (built 2003) from the Med to the Persian Gulf at $32,000 a day.

Rio is paying the same for the 77,100-dwt Clara (built 2006) to run from the southern Atlantic to China.

The 76,600-dwt Nord Fortune (built 2008) attracted $26,000 a day for a trip from Europe to Brazil and back

Bunge paid $20,000 and $22,000 respectively for similar voyages with the 75,700-dwt Red Iris (built 2003) and the 69,600-dwt Mass Prosperity (built 1993).

Bunge also has the 73,800-dwt Kalypso (built 1997) from Brazil to Japan at $23,250 per day plus a ballast bonus of $450,000.

Also going from Brazil but to Europe with the same bonus is the 74,200-dwt Ocean Baron (built 2002) for Cobelfret with a day rate of $18,000.

Italy’s RBD Armatori paid $23,000 a day for 12 to 14 months with the 73,700-dwt Barbara (built 1997).


Oldendorff has been very active in all asset classes and the German spent $30,000 a day for a trip from the Black Sea to the Far East with the 52,100-dwt Gloriana (built 2000). The charterer is not avoiding the Gulf of Aden, however.

Oldendorff also spent $24,000 a day for the 47,600-dwt Spar Orion (built 1996) to go from the Black Sea to the Far East, also via the Suez.

A roundtrip between China and India cost $18,500 with the 58,00-dwt Genco Hunter (built 2007) and another in the Atlantic cost $17,000 with the 52,400-dwt Lotus (built 2001).

The 52,400-dwt Doric Spirit (built 2001) went for four to six months at $15,400, the 48,900-dwt Globetrotter (built 2000) going for the same period at $14,250.
