The HEAVYCON voyage charter party is a standard transportation contract for heavy and voluminous cargoes. It is a “knock for knock” contract designed primarily for the semi-submersible vessels serving the super heavy lift market where cargoes are almost exclusively carried on deck and are, in most cases, sole cargoes. A standard bill of lading, HEAVYCONBILL, is intended to be used with it. The latest edition of this contract is HEAVYCON 2007.
