Odfjell Seachem ASA v. Vinmar International, Ltd. (The “Bow Lady”) – SMA No. 3810, 30 Oct 2003

ASBATANKVOY -- CARGO -- LOADPORT -- SHIP-TO-SHIP -- COASTER -- DEMURRAGE -- ARBITRATION -- DOCK -- Owner Award While loading other charterers’ cargo at the loadport, the Vessel tendered NOR for the Charterer’s ship-to-ship transfer. The Charterer’s coaster, however, waited until all other Vessel loading ceased before coming alongside the Vessel, causing an additional day of laytime. But at arbitration, the Charterer argued that the Vessel’s NOR was invalid because He/She claims that STS transfer could not begin while dock loading.
