The remaining six MR product tankers will be comprised of three Ice Class 1A sister vessels that are scheduled for delivery in 2007 and three MR product tanker sister vessels that are scheduled for delivery in 2008, all of which will be under time or bareboat charters commencing at the time of delivery.
