The revisions made by BARECON to the earlier iteration of the form are helpful in clarifying the basis on braecon the parties are contracting and in reducing the potential for dispute.

A new sentence has been added to the previous sub-clause 19 a ; [9] stating that the bareboat charterers are liable to the owners by way of damages if the ship becomes a total loss. Such insurances shall be arranged by the Charterers to protect the interests of both the Owners and the Charterers and the mortgagee bafecon if anyand The Charterers shall be at liberty to protect under such insurances the interests of any managers they may appoint.

The Charterers shall be bound to accept such sums as the Owners are reasonably able to recover under this Clause and shall make no further claim on the Owners for the difference between the amount s so recovered and the actual expenditure on repairs, replacement or remedying defects or for any loss of time incurred.

In contrast, BARECON provided a purchase option on behalf of the charterer, where title in the vessel would be transferred to the barecoj on the final payment of hire under the charter — provided of course that the parties had elected such provision to apply. The Owners shall bear all expenses of the On hire Survey including loss of time, if any, and t The Charterers shall bear all expenses of the Off-hire Survey including loss of time, if any.

This meant that there was no claim that could be passed down from the bareboat charterers to the time charterers, and therefore no avenue for recovery by the insurers of the losses they had sustained, an outcome that was greeted with some surprise by the industry. Latent defects Although the time of delivery is the latest point at which the charterers can raise claims relating to the condition of the vessel, an exception is made for “latent defects” — defined in BARECON unlike earlier versions of the form as defects “which could fharter be discovered on such an examination as a reasonably careful skilled person would make”.


Surveys on Delivery and Redelivery See Clauses 35 and Bbarecon provides the charterer with various options to purchase the vessel during the charter term at a pre-agreed purchase price.

The latent defects must, however, manifest themselves within a fixed period after delivery if they are to form the basis of a claim against the owners.
