Capital Product Partners L.P., an Athens-based company whose securities are listed on NASDAQ, said it had acquired three
5,023-TEU containerships — the CCNI Angol, Hyundai Privilege
and Hyundai Platinum
— from its sponsor, Capital Maritime & Trading Corp., for an aggregate price of $195 million.
Each of the three ships was built in 2013 at Hyundai Heavy
Industries and are employed under a 12-year time
charter to Hyundai Merchant Marine at a gross rate of $29,350 per day. The charters commenced shortly after the delivery of the vessels during the first
half of 2013.
Capital Product Partners currently owns 30 vessels, including four
Suezmax crude oil tankers, 18 medium-range
product tankers, seven post panamax container vessels and one capesize
bulk carrier. All of its vessels are under period charters to charterers such as BP Shipping, OSG, Petrobras, A.P. Moller-Maersk, Hyundai Merchant Marine, Blue Marine Cargo, Subtec, Cosco Bulk Carrier Co., and Capital Maritime & Trading. - Chris Dupin
