Panamax progress
Unsurprisingly front hauls continued to rule the roost in the panamax sector but the index dived despite upward movement in voyage rates.

There was even a plus-$40,000 a day deal with some in the high $30,000 and many over $20,000 on other routes.


The 76,800-dwt Lord Byron (built 2005) managed $40,500 per day for a run from the Med to the Black Sea and on to the Far East.

Noble has the 82,800-dwt Clipper Suffolk (built 2006) from northern Europe to Canada and China at $38,500 a day while Pacific Bulk spent just $500 a day less for a trip from the Med to Brazil and China with the 73,700-dwt Calm Seas (built 1999).

There were good enough rates on the Atlantic side too with Swiss Marine spending $30,000 on a northern European trip with the 76,600-dwt Red Rose (built 2003). And a similar itinerary cost the same charterer $500 a day less with the 75,300-dwt Nordtrave (built 2001).

The 76,500-dwt Double Rejoince (built 2006) also picked up $28,000 for an Atlantic roundtrip while Cargill spent $30,000 on a similar itinerary with the 73,400-dwt Endless (built 1999).

The commodities giant also spent $20,500 on a trip from the Persian Gulf to South America and Japan with the 72,900-dwt Ataman (built 2001), the same as Dreyfus spent on a Pacific roundtrip to South America with the 75,200-dwt Astrale (built 2000).

Another Pacific roundtrip cost $20,000 with the 76,000-dwt Botafogo (built 2001) and another $21,500 with the 75,600-dwt Dannan Island (built 2006).

The period market has been very quiet but Great Pacific did snap up the 76,600-dwt Hao Ying (built 2002) for four to six months at $18,250.


Armada continued to be active as it spent $16,500 a day for the 47,800-dwt Dingxianghai (built 2000) to go from West Africa to South America and back across to Europe.

In the period market Hanjin put down $18,000 per day for between four and six months with the 52,500-dwt Apageon (built 2005).
