London Arbitration 22/05

NYPE -- ARBITRATION -- VOYAGE -- DRAFT -- TANKER -- DISPORT -- TIME CHARTER – CHARTERER ORDERING VESSEL TO LOAD TO ARRIVAL DRAFT OF 11 METRES – OWNER REFUSING BASIS OFFICIAL DRAFT RESTRICTION AT DISPORT OF 10.5 METRES -- Owner Award This arbitration centers on the Owner’s refusal to load His/Her vessels on four voyages during March/May to a full arrival draft of eleven meters. Instead, He/She used a safer draft of 10.5 meters in accordance with Navtex costal warnings during these months. The Charterers, however, brought arbitration against the Owner with evidence that the discharge port authority was berthing vessels up to the desired eleven meters draft.
