The scale of the global shipbuilding market, from smaller support vessels through to specialist ships, massive cargo vessels and cruise ships is vast. This crucial course investigates all aspects of vessel newbuilding and shipyard contracts. With supply and demand cycles in the shipping industry, contracting a newbuilding is always a challenging decision with opportunities for profits for the knowledgeable but losses easily threaten for simple business or contractual misunderstanding or mistakes.
During the six modules we will investigate shipbuilding contracts, with a detailed look at the stakeholders, processes, finance, legal and commercial issues, delivery and guarantees. Whether you are from a commercial, or production background, a broker, or working from a shipping company or in a support role, this course will benefit you.
