Chembulk Trading, Inc. v. Vinmar International, Ltd. (The “Chembulk Rotterdam”) – SMA No. 3443, 28 Apr 1998

ASBATANKVOY -- DISPORT -- ALL-FAST -- TYPHOON -- BERTH -- ACT OF GOD -- DEMURRAGE -- CHARTER PARTY -- LAYTIME -- Charterer Award Although the Vessel was all-fast at disport, a typhoon warning stopped all discharge and forced the Vessel off the berth. The Charterers claim that this time should be considered a weather induced delay and be billed only at half the demurrage rate as per the charter party clause. The Owners argued that because the allotted laytime had not expired, the half-demurrage rate should not apply.
