Capital Product Partners L.P. Announces the Successful Delivery of the LNG Carrier ‘Asterix I’

ATHENS, Greece, Feb. 21, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Capital Product Partners L.P. (NASDAQ:CPLP), an international owner of ocean going vessels, today announced the successful delivery of the LNG carrier (“LNG/C”) ‘Asterix I’.

The vessel was delivered on February 17, 2023 and has started her seven year employment with Hartree Partners Power & Gas Company (UK) Limited, who maintain an option to extend by an additional two years.

The vessel acquisition was financed through a combination of a $12.0 million cash deposit advanced to Capital Maritime & Trading Corp. (the “Seller”) in 2022, $184.0 million of debt drawn under a sale and leaseback transaction with CMB Financial Leasing (“CMBFL”) and $34.0 million of cash at hand. The CMBFL lease has quarterly principal repayments of $2.2 million, a tenor of ten years and the option to repurchase the vessel at a predetermined price after the first anniversary of the arrangement, together with a purchase option of $96.5 million at the expiration of the lease in February 2033.

Asterix I is the seventh latest generation LNG/C of the Partnership and the third vessel the Partnership takes delivery under an agreement to acquire one 174,000 cbm latest generation X-DF LNG/C and three 13,312 TEU hybrid scrubber-fitted Tier III and Phase III, dual fuel ready eco container sister vessels from the Seller, announced on June 7, 2022.
