ATHENS, GREECE--(Marketwire - May 31, 2007) - OceanFreight Inc. (NASDAQ: OCNF), a NASDAQ listed bulk shipping company which completed its initial public offering on April 25 of this year, announced that it has chartered its only remaining unchartered vessel M/V Juneau (1990 built; 149,000 DWT) for a two year period to commence in August 2007 at a rate, net of commissions, of $46,800 per day.

Bob Cowen, OceanFreight's Chairman and CEO, said "We are pleased that we were able to secure a charter for our Capesize vessel to a first class charterer for two years at a rate more than $4,000 per day higher than that assumed in the Company's initial public offering. The M/V Juneau was the only vessel in OceanFreight's initial fleet not committed to a long term charter at that time.

The commencement of Juneau's charter in August will permit us to immediately put her into drydock when she is delivered in late June, and the vessel will be able to operate for a full three years before the next scheduled drydock.

We are also pleased to announce that OceanFreight has engaged Wallem Ship Management of Hong Kong to act as third party technical manager for our vessels. Wallem is one of the world's largest and most well respected ship managers and OceanFreight has been able to retain Wallem at about half the cost in management fees that had originally been anticipated."
