Capital Product Partners (CPLP) has chartered one of its wide-beam neo-panamax boxships in a deal worth more than $34m.

The US-listed company has fixed the 9,288-teu Akadimos (built 2015) with its existing charterer for a further two years.

The Akadimos is fixed to Japan’s Ocean Network Express, which operates the vessel in the Asia-Indian subcontinent services.

The ship, which is set to come open in April, will be taken at a rate that equates to $47,000 per day.
