The vessel, Hull No. BC18.0-50, bought for a purchase price of $58m, is expected to be delivered to the buyer by mid-August 2014.

Excluding the newly acquired vessel, as well as two new-building Newcastlemax dry bulk vessels and one new-building Kamsarmax dry bulk vessel expected to be delivered to the company during the second quarter of 2016, Diana’s fleet currently consists of 38 dry bulk vessels.
