New time charter contract. Euroseas Ltd. executed a time charter contract for M/V Stephania K at a gross daily rate of $22,000 for a minimum period of 23 months to a maximum period of 25 months at the option of the charterer. The M/V Stephania K is a newbuild 1,800 twenty-foot equivalent unit (TEU) feeder container ship. Recall that TEU is a unit of cargo capacity that is based on the volume of a 20-foot-long intermodal container that can be transferred between different carriers. The new charter will commence upon delivery of the vessel from the shipyard which is expected to take place on June 28.

Favorable charter rate. The charter is expected to contribute EBITDA of roughly $11.0 million for the minimum contracted period and improves Euroseas’ remaining 2024 charter coverage to 90%. Based on the rate and duration, the charter represents a significant improvement compared to its sister vessel, the M/V Monica, which was recently chartered for 12 months at a rate of $16,000 per day.
