  4. 4. Types of charter A voyage charter is the hiring of both a vessel and a crew for specific voyage between a load port and a discharge port. The charterer pays the vessel owner on a per-ton or lump-sum basis. The owner pays the port costs (excluding stevedoring), fuel costs and crew costs. The payment for the use of the vessel is known as freight. This type of charter specifies a period known as laytime, for unloading the cargo. If laytime is exceeded, the charterer must pay demurrage. If laytime is saved, the charter party may require the ship-owner(s) to pay dispatch to the charter. A time charter is the hiring of a vessel for a specific period of time, the owner still manages the vessel but the charterer selects the ports and directs the vessel where to go. The charterer pays for all fuel the vessel consumes and a daily hire to the owner of the vessel A bareboat charter or demise charter is an arrangement for the hiring of a vessel whereby no administration or technical maintenance is included as part of the agreement. The charterer obtains possession and full control of the vessel along with the legal and financial responsibility for it. The charterer pays for all operating expenses, including fuel, crew, port expenses and Protection and Indemnity (P&I) plus hull insurance. In commercial demise chartering, the charter period may last for many years, and may end with the charterer acquiring title (ownership) of the vessel. In this case, a demise charter could be likened to lease to buy or hire- purchase from the owners, who may have been the actual shipbuilders. Demise chartering is common for oil tankers, LNG ships and bulk carriersTHE ROBERT MCANGUS GROUP – MARBELLA SPAIN Page 4 ©
  5. 5. Dry cargo vesselsHANDYSIZE VESSELS Handysize vessels make up the bulk of the worlds ocean-going cargo fleet. They are generally capable of handling shipments between 25,000 and 35,000 dwt (dead weight tonnes). These vessels are more maneuverable and have shallower draft than larger vessels and have the ability to access a wider variety of ports. Most Handysize ships are “geared” for example fitted with cranes, thus allowing them to load and discharge at ports which lack cranes or other such cargo handling systems. Compared to larger dry bulk shipping carriers these vessels also can carry a large variety of cargo types.HANDYMAX VESSELS Handymax Vessels are larger versions of the popular Handysize Vessels carrying approximately 37,000 to 52,000 dwt (dead weight tonnes) of dry bulk cargo. A typical Handymax ship will be outfitted with five dry bulk cargo holds and up to four cranes with 30 metric ton lifting capacity for cargo self loading/unloading operations in suitable ports. These ships are typically available for both domestic and international ship charterage.PANAMAX VESSELS Panamax Vessels are very large ocean going vessels that are designed to take advantage of the maximum vessel capacity of the Panama Canal. They ships can typically carry between 55,000 and 85,000 dwt (dead weight tonnes) and are the shipping vessels of choice for many dry bulk shipping cargoes such as grain or minerals.

  6. 6. Oil tankersAn oil tanker, also known as a petroleum tanker is a merchant ship designed for the bulk transport ofoil. There are two (2) basic types of oil tankers, the crude tanker and the product tanker. Crudetankers move large quantities of unrefined crude oil from its point of extraction to the refinery.Product tankers generally are much smaller vessels and are designed to move refinedpetrochemicals from refineries to points near consuming markets.Oil tankers are often classified by their size as well as their occupation. The size classes rangefrom inland or coastal tankers of a few thousand metric tons of deadweight to a mammoth ultralarge crude carrier (ULCC) of 550,000 dwt. Tankers move approximately 2,000,000,000 (twobillion) metric tons of oil every year. THE ROBERT MCANGUS GROUP – MARBELLA SPAIN Page 6 ©
  7. 7. Cruise shipsCruise ship or liner is a passenger ship used for pleasure voyages, where the voyage itself andthe ship’s amenities are part of the sailing experience, as well as the different destinations alongthe way. Point to point transportation is not the prime purpose, as cruise ships operate mostly onroutes that return the passenger to the point of embarkation at the originating port, so the portsof call are usually in a specified region of a continent.
