Lastly, Navios Maritime Partners has agreed to bareboat charter-in two newbuilding 81,000DWT Kamsarmax vessels, one of which is subject to completion of documentation.
Each vessel is being bareboat chartered-in for 10 years, and the company has the option to acquire the Kamsarmax vessels after the end of the fourth year for the remaining period of the bareboat charter.
Delivery of the vessels is scheduled for the second and third quarters of 2021.
