Sale of Ships provides in-depth coverage of the most commonly used contract form for the sale of second-hand ships: the Norwegian Saleform. It discusses the issues in clear language and uses a practical, clause-byclause approach. The new 3rd edition covers the recently introduced Saleform 2012, explaining amendments to nearly all the clauses introduced to better reflect industry practice and clarify areas prone to dispute.

  • Provides clear, clause-by-clause commentary on the saleform
  • Explains in practical terms what the clauses mean and what issues to look out for
  • Places the contract in the context of general contract law, the Sale of Goods Act and the Unfair Contract Terms Act 1977
  • Offers constructive opinions from experienced practitioners where the law is unclear
  • Highlights where the Saleform 2012 differs from the Saleform 93
  • Examines the Nipponsale 1993 and 1999, other commonly used contracts
  • Features a new chapter on the Singapore Ship Sale Form
  • Explains the impact of major recent case law, such as The Union Power and The Griffon
  • Includes a new section on performance guarantees incorporating important recent decisions in the area
  • Presents step-by-step lists advising on how to proceed in specific situations
  • Features a wealth of practical documents in the appendices: sample letters, memoranda of agreement, explanatory notes to the Saleform, and extracts from legislation and conventions
