>> The Mariner’s Guide to Dry Time Charterparties explains the fundamentals of the charterparty contract that underpins much of the commercial exploitation of the world’s shipping tonnage, namely the dry time charterparty.

>> Concentrating mainly on the obligations of the ship owner, the guide aims to assist ship’s officers, operators and managers to understand fully the nature of the dry time charterparty and the legal implications of the most common of the owner’s obligations.

>> The guide – which seeks to adopt as practical an non-legalistic approach as possible – provides guidance where appropriate on loss prevention by highlighting potential problem areas and referring to steps masters should take in collecting evidence in the event of disputes.

>> Copies of the various international conventions are included, together with a proforma of the 1946 New York Produce Exchange (NYPE) form.

>> The Mariner’s Guide to Dry Time Charterparties is written by Jeremy Miles, Katherine Birchall and Peter Scott, lawyers with the unrivalled FD&D team at the North of England P&I club.
