The capesize market is steaming at the moment with rates continuing to go upwards in virtually all lanes.

The $100,000 a day barrier set by Classic Maritime earlier was burst in the Atlantic while Australia pick-ups headed to China continue to get a few thousand more a day.

Similarly the panamax market is thriving and Richstone was a significant mover as it signed up for a trio of Black Sea pick-ups headed for China.


Bunge was the one raising the bar to $103,000 for an Atlantic roundtrip with the 169,000-dwt Maria A Angelicoussis (built 2001). The charter is a huge coup for Swiss Marine which is reletting it after taking it in late 2008 for three years at just $45,000 a day.

The 172,000-dwt Channel Alliance (built 1996) went close with a trip from the Persian Gulf to Brazil and China, bagging $100,000.

There were three China-Australia roundtrips of note from BHP Billiton. The miner paid $91,000 for the 171,300-dwt Glorious (built 2004), $87,500 for the 171,000-dwt Aquacharm (built 2003) and $85,000 for the 174,000-dwt CHS World (built 2005).

The middle of the trio was a relet from Goldman Sachs outfit J Aron which itself booked the 171,000-dwt Jean LD (built 2005) for a China-Brazil roundtrip at $76,750.

The period market was a little down as Swiss Marine paid $59,000 a day for five to seven months with the 169,000-dwt Golden Feng (built 2009).


Richstone’s trio of charters from the Black Sea to China caught the eye. The charterer paid $38,000 for the 72,100-dwt New Leader (built 1996), $27,000 for the 69,000-dwt Nosco Glory (built 1995) and $25,500 for the 68,800-dwt Haina Wealth (built 1989).

Hanjin beat the top figure by $500 a day as it splashed out on the 76,600-dwt Queen Lily (built 2004) for a front haul.

A run from South Africa to China netted the 74,700-dwt Maddalena d’Amato (built 2001) $33,000.

And Parakou has the 74,200-dwt Tian Du Feng (built 2001) for a Pacific roundtrip at $25,000 a day.

Having just taken the 77,800-dwt Tai Progress (built 2004) for five to seven months at $31,000 a day earlier this week, STX Pan Ocean has relet it to Kru Trade for the entire period at $32,750 a day.

Cobelfret tied down the 83,700-dwt Torm Saltholm (built 2008) for 11 to 13 months at $22,500 and Eastern Ocean has the 74,300-dwt Diamond Seas (built 2001) at $23,000 for nine or 10 months.


Spot rates were looking a little rosier here but there were still not great shakes.

Norden booked the 53,600-dwt Matumba (built 2005) from the US Gulf to the Far East at $31,000 a day.

The 56,000-dwt Santa Anna (built 2006) managed $25,000 a day for a trip from the Southern Atlantic to Southeast Asia. This is the same as Windrose paid for a US Gulf-Med spin with the 48,100-dwt Syrena (built 1997).

Oldendorff spent $15,250 a day on four to six months with the 52,400-dwt Cos Lucky (built 2003).
