Genoa-based Premuda has had a busy week bringing in one vessel and chartering out another.
The company's CEO Marco Fiori said that its Four Jolly joint venture with Messina Group has just signed a time charter with Petrobras for the LR2 tanker Four Wind.
The vessel goes out on a two-year charter at $20,000 per day,with an option of a third-year at $21,000 per day.
Fiori also revealed that Premuda has sealed an agreement with Imabari's Minaminippon Shipbuilding for a 50,000DWT MR tanker newbuilding to be chartered in for five years,with two-year option and purchase options, upon delivery,scheduled in mid-2022.
The vessel is the third brought in via the Japanese yard. A first MR,called Yufu Crown,was delivered to the Pillarstone-controlled company earlier this year (also on a five-year charter with purchase options) and a second unit will follow at the beginning of 2022.
