Book Description

The making of a shipbuilding contract involves significant potential risks for both builder and customer. This book provides a source of expert guidance for those involved in drawing up, negotiating or enforcing shipbuilding contracts.

In one volume it gives a basis for the successful conduct of contracts both at home and internationally. The book takes the reader through all the main aspects of a shipbuilding contract, including those where conflicts are most likely to arise, for example:-

  • the making of the contract and its pricing,
  • registration and security,
  • the passing of property,
  • time of delivery,
  • builder's and customer's default
  • causes and remedies and third party rights.
