STX Pan Ocean Co Ltd v. Ugland Bulk Transport AS (The “Livanita”) – QBD (Comm. Ct.), 6 Jun 2007

NYPE -- HULL DAMAGE -- ICE -- ANCHORAGE -- SAFE PORT WARRANTY -- CHARTER PARTY CONSTRUCTION -- Owner Award En route from disport, the Vessel suffered hull damage from ice and the Owner submitted a claim for damage compensation.

The Owner defended stating that the charter outlined that all berths, ports and anchorages must be safe regardless of acceptance implications.
