Jan. 19 (Bloomberg) -- Paragon Shipping Inc., a Marshall Islands-incorporated owner of 16 vessels that haul dry-bulk commodities, owes $24 million on one of its carriers, the Friendly Seas.

The amount owed, which is as of Sept. 30, is less than the $36.6 million listed in a company filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on Dec. 31, 2010, Robert J. Perri, the company’s Athens-based financial officer, said by e-mail yesterday. Paragon said Jan. 17 the vessel’s charterer asked to change the hire terms of a $33,750-a-day contract scheduled to expire in 27 months.
