BIMCO publishes new standalone Refund Guarantee for Shipbuilding Contracts

17 June 2021

A buyer’s payment instalments are at risk under a shipbuilding contract until the shipyard delivers the ship. To safeguard against the risk of the shipyard defaulting or becoming insolvent it is common practice to cover this risk with a refund guarantee issued by a bank. BIMCO’s Documentary Committee has adopted a clearly worded standalone refund guarantee that will assist parties in their shipbuilding projects.

Refund Guarantee for Shipbuilding Contracts

17 June 2021

Refund guarantees are an integral part of a shipbuilding project. Whilst they are not part of the shipbuilding contract as such, it is unlikely that any ship building contract would be signed if there was no such guarantee for the buyer. The refund guarantee is often regarded as the “financial cornerstone” of a shipbuilding project. Copyright in the BIMCO Refund Guarantee for Shipbuilding Contracts is held by BIMCO.
