London Arbitration 16/14

NYPE -- TIME CHARTER -- LATE DELIVERY AND CREW CHANGE -- FAILURE TO PAY HIRE -- RIGHT TO WITHDRAW VESSEL -- REPUDIATORY BREACH -- DAMAGES -- Owner Award Charterer failed to make several hire payments and failed to reimburse bunker costs causing the Owner to withdraw the Vessel on the basis of Charterer’s repudiatory breach. Conversely, Charterer claimed that Owner’s withdrawal was improper because it was not in compliance with the governing term and asserted that Owner was in repudiatory breach by not following their voyage orders. Charterer counterclaimed for damages owing to the Vessel’s late delivery causing a missed cargo opportunity and rejected liability for hire when Owner failed to follow their voyage orders.
