New York-listed tonnage provider Global Ship Lease (GSL) has confirmed a new feeder ship charter at more than 300% of the previous rate.

The 2,200-teu Kumasi (built 2002) had been fixed to French line CMA CGM since 2016 at $9,800 per day.

There was an option for this to rise to $32,000 per day through to the end of 2024 after a drydocking at the end of 2021, but the deal looks to have been dropped.
