The Masterclass on Ship Management is a series of 10 online sessions, delivered in 10 days. Each session will run for 90 minutes and will cover essential contractual ship management issues.

What will you learn?

During the course, the trainers will discuss and elaborate on some particular commercial aspects of using BIMCO’s current ship management contracts. The emphasis will be on SHIPMAN 2009/CREWMAN A&B, which will be used as a platform for discussing how the contracts are applied and commercially used. The course will look at the contracts from both managers’ and owners’ perspective.

Since SHIPMAN was last updated in 2009, the ship management industry has developed tremendously. As a result, an increasing number of changes and rider clauses are incorporated into the contracts to adjust and balance them commercially. BIMCO is in the process of setting up a sub-committee to revise SHIPMAN/CREWMAN, which will completely review the forms. Until the new forms are ready, the BIMCO Masterclass aims to focus on and clarify some of the main issues known to cause discussions and ambiguity in the current forms. 

The trainers are represented by both owners and managers and will examine their respective roles and expectations in a ship management arrangement, and how they each act to protect their interests by managing their contractual liabilities for the duration of the ship management agreement. The course aims to raise the awareness of the risks and liabilities by examining the forms and by offering practical examples of cases handled by the trainers.
