The Maritime Law Series is back with more insightful sessions that aim to guide you in exploring the multiple facets of maritime law. In the third session, it will look into the Sale of Ships and Ship Mortgages.

 The Sale of Ships

The process of buying and selling second-hand ships is to a large extent a practical matter, but nevertheless one with serious legal consequences.

This talk will touch on the standard form contracts used in a ship sale– the Norwegian Sale Form, the Nippon Sale Form and the Singapore Sale Form.

It will also touch upon the various security documents used in a ship sale and attempt to set out the remedies available to both buyers and sellers in the event of a default by either party.

Ship Mortgages

Financing ship purchases is complex business. They often involve loans on a syndicated basis by institutional lenders, whether for new-builds, second-hand tonnage, refittings or conversions.

This talk aims to give attendees an introduction to ship mortgages. It will explain briefly the various contracts involved in a ship mortgage transaction – insurances, assignments, undertakings and guarantees.

The talk will end by describing the rights and liabilities of mortgagees and how these rights and liabilities differ between lending and leasing arrangements.
