This is the latest edition of BARGEHIRE which is a bareboat charter party specifically designed for unmanned, non-self-propelled seagoing barges. It is a lease agreement whereby the charterer obtains possession and full control of the barge along with the legal and financial responsibility for it as further detailed in the BARGEHIRE. The charterer generally pays for operating expenses such as maintenance and repairs but, unlike bareboat chartered ships, barges are often chartered with owner’s Hull & Machinery insurance made available to the charterer. Although not as often, Protection & Indemnity insurance can also be made available to charterers, especially when the duration of the contract is short. Copyright in BARGEHIRE 2021 is held by BIMCO.
