Vessel chartering is a process by which a company or individual hires a ship, either for a one-time voyage or for a more extended period of time, to transport cargo or passengers from one location to another. The process typically involves negotiating and signing a charter agreement or contract, which specifies the terms and conditions of the charter, such as the type of vessel, the duration of the charter, the destination, the payment terms, and any other relevant details.
There are two main types of vessel chartering: time charter and voyage charter. Time charter involves hiring a vessel for a specific period of time, during which the charterer has control over the vessel and is responsible for operating costs. At the same time, the owner remains responsible for the maintenance and management of the vessel. Voyage charter, on the other hand, involves hiring a vessel for a specific voyage or set of voyages, during which the owner remains responsible for the operation and management of the vessel, and the charterer pays a fee for the transportation of cargo or passengers.
