About the BARECON 180 seminar

BARECON is widely used when charterers require full control of the vessel and take over the legal and operational responsibility for an extended period. BARECON is often a key element in ship finance transactions and long-term cargo projects. It is also a useful tool for inter-company trading and chartering between affiliate companies.

The latest edition of this contract is BARECON 2017, where BIMCO aims to bring the industry-standard bareboat charterparty terms fully up to date, reflecting commercial practice, addressing issues recently raised by the UK Courts, and simplifying the form where possible.
