Rickmers Maritime Trust sank into the red with a net loss of US$74.68 million for the third quarter, versus a net profit of US$8.99 million a year ago, weighed down by a US$69.1 million impairment charge for 15 vessels. Revenue fell 43 per cent year on year to US$15.64 million due to reduced charter rates and lower vessel utilisation rate amid adverse industry conditions.
