When drafting BARECONthe BIMCO sub-committee recognised that the charterers could be exposed in the event of the vessel sustaining damage shortly before delivery, suggesting that the charterers “should seek to negotiate an amenable settlement with the owners in respect of damage that has occurred between inspection and delivery”.

BARECON has a new clause allowing the charterers to “place a maximum of two pparty representatives on board the Vessel at their sole risk and expense” for “a reasonable period prior to delivery of the Vessel”. Time for Delivery See also Clause The Vessel upon delivery shall have her survey cycles up to date and trading and class certificates valid for at least the number of months agreed in Box Bank Guarantee See Clause 33 Optional, only to apply if Box 27 filled in The Charterers undertake to furnish, before delivery of the Vessel, a first class bank guarantee or bond in the sum and at the place as indicated in Box 27 as guarantee for full performance of their obligations under this Charter.
