Greece's Navios Maritime Partners has sealed another lucrative long-term container ship charter with Zim.

The US-listed owner has fixed out the 3,500-teu Navios Summer (built 2006) to the Israeli line for four years at $36,000 per day, Fearnley Securities said.

With fixed operating costs of $6,300 per day for the 3,000-teu to 3,500-teu panamaxes operated by Navios Ship Management, and a Fearnleys estimate of general and administrative costs of $1,300 per day, the contract will add $10.4m
