Law of Shipbuilding Contracts provides a comprehensive guide to the legal principles governing contracts for the construction of ships and has been thoroughly revised since the last edition in 2002.

Particular attention is paid to changes relating to quality standards, liquidated damages for deficiencies in performance, and the scope of the shipbuilder’s post-delivery guarantee of the vessel.

  • Comments in detail upon the Shipbuilder's Association of Japan (SAJ) Form but now contrasts this with the new BIMCO NEWBUILDCON Form, published in 2007 and the China Maritime Arbitration Commission (CMAC) form from October 2011 to provide a broad ranging analysis of this complex subject.
  • Focuses exclusively upon the interpretation and application of English Law principles to the buiness of shipbuilding as this continues to represent the most commonly chosen laws of large scale export new building
  • As in the previous editions includes sections dealing with the guarantees and other agreements which support the shipbuilding contract and with ship conversion contracts.
