Aquacharm Shipping Co., Ltd. v. Venus Lines Agency, Inc. and Venus Line Maritime, Inc. (The “Aqua Sierra”) – SMA No. 3555, 5 Aug 1999

AMWELSH -- STEAMING -- BERTH -- PORT -- DRAFT -- DEMURRAGE -- Owner Award Because of delays steaming upriver, the Vessel missed her designated berthing time and was forced to wait once she arrived at port. The Owners contend that this delay was due to an insufficient draft while steaming, therefore making it demurrage. The Charterers, on the other hand, argue that this time was un-billable because engine trouble caused the delays to port.
