Ship sale and purchase 2014
Foreword by Michael K. Drayton ChairmanThe Baltic Exchange
Specialist ship sale and purchase brokers have pioneered their
own market over the years. That market has developed its unique
ways of working, its own terminology and dedicated documentation.
S&P brokers keep in contact with those companies that possess
vessels they might sell and those that are considering buying such
vessels. They keep track of sales and prices to provide a
professional service to their principals.
This book describes how these professionals represent the best
interests of both buyer and seller and how they should handle
negotiations between the parties and attend to the necessary
formalities once an agreement to buy or sell has been reached.
The various ship sale contracts and clauses are examined in
great detail as well as the demolition market and its standard
forms. Geography, ship registration, classification, finance, and
legal issues are some of the areas covered in the book that are
essential reading for any successful sale and purchase broker.
