Containership demolition reach all time high and provides a positive surprise for the struggling container shipping industry.
The Standard Agreement for the Supervision of Vessel Construction, codenamed SUPERMAN, clearly sets out a ship managers’ duties and obligations when providing supervision services to a newbuilding project. It is an agency based agreement whereby the supervisors act for and on behalf of the owners. SUPERMAN is modelled on SHIPMAN 2009 and includes the same structure of liability provisions. Payment is on a “cost plus fee” basis. The latest edition of this contract is SUPERMAN, issued in 2016. Copyright in SUPERMAN is held by BIMCO.
