This guide is intended to provide general best practice advice for ship owners/managers, on placing a ship into lay-up. It is not intended to be a lay-up plan as this should be developed by the ship owner/manager for each specific ship, taking into consideration the recommendations and requirements of all interested parties.

 

Where a ship is anchored or berthed alongside awaiting orders, with manning levels in compliance with the safe manning document and with all engines and machinery available for use, it is not regarded as being laid up and the ship’s status with Class, P&I or hull and machinery insurance is unchanged.

BIMCO

BIMCO is the world’s largest direct-membership organisation for shipowners, charterers, shipbrokers and agents. In total, around 60% of the world’s merchant fleet is a BIMCO member, measured by tonnage (weight of the unloaded ships).

The organisation has NGO status and is based in Copenhagen, Denmark, with offices in Athens, Singapore and Shanghai.

With around 1900 member companies across 120 countries – from the largest shipowners in the world to small local port agents and law firms, BIMCO represents a wide range of maritime companies and organisations.

BIMCO’s goal is to secure a level playing field for the global shipping industry. BIMCO therefore works to promote and secure global standards and regulations for the maritime sector. The organisation’s century long effort into creating standard contracts and clauses is an expression of that aim.
