London Arbitration 18/14

NYPE -- TIME CHARTER -- SPEED AND PERFORMANCE -- BOTTOM FOULING -- RISK UNDER DIRECT CONTINUATION -- STEVEDORE DAMAGE -- Partial Owner Award Under the first trip charter the Vessel was forced to remain at the loadport anchorage for 48 days before sailing to the discharge port. Due to the extended delay, the high temperature waters caused bottom fouling that impacted her performance under two separate charters that were in direct continuation. At issue is whether the Owner breached the performance warranty under both trip charters and who is responsible for the hull cleaning costs.
